The Minnesota Lynx and Las Vegas Aces meet Thursday in WNBA action at the Michelob ULTRA Arena. The Minnesota Lynx look to rebound from a sluggish 1-4 start. The Las Vegas Aces look to build on their 4-1 record.

The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 76.2 points on 42.3 percent shooting and allowing 84.6 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Kayla McBride is averaging 24 points and 3 rebounds, while Sylvia Fowles is averaging 18.2 points and 9.8 assists. Moriah Jefferson is the third double-digit scorer and Jessica Shepard is grabbing 9 rebounds. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 31.8 percent from beyond the arc and 68.5 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 40 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38 rebounds per game.

The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 89.8 points on 47.7 percent shooting and allowing 79.6 points on 42.2 percent shooting. Kelsey Plum is averaging 18 points and 3 rebounds while Jackie Young is averaging 18 points and 3.8 rebounds. A’ja Wilson is the third double-digit scorer and Dearica Hamby is grabbing 10.8 rebounds. The Las Vegas Aces are shooting 43 percent from beyond the arc and 83.5 percent from the free throw line. The Las Vegas Aces are allowing 33.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.4 rebounds per game.

The Lynx are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 vs. Western Conference and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Thursday games. The Aces are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Thursday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Lynx last 8 road games. The over is 11-5 in Aces last 16 home games. The Lynx are 11-4-1 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Las Vegas.

The Minnesota Lynx haven't done much of anything right up to this point, but things should improve with the return of Kayla McBride, who balled in her first game and was the reason the Lynx got their first win of the season. The Lynx have far more scoring depth with McBride in the mix. The Las Vegas Aces are obviously the better team here with scorers everywhere, but this is also a potential look ahead spot with Phoenix on deck Saturday in what will be a national TV game. This is a lot of points. I'll take a stab with the Lynx on the road.
