The Wings are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and 20-9-1 ATS in their last 30 vs. Western Conference. The Lynx are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 6-1 in Wings last 7 overall. The over is 5-2 in Lynx last 7 Thursday games. The Wings are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Minnesota and 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
This feels like 2 teams heading in different directions, as the Dallas Wings are piling up the losses and have been rough defensively during this losing stretch. The Minnesota Lynx have caught fire out of nowhere, and that includes a double overtime victory over the Mercury. All of a sudden, the Lynx find themselves just 1.5 games out of a playoff spot. The Lynx are a team to watch down the stretch, as they've found something lately. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the home team.
