Two hit or miss teams that are difficult to get a proper read on, and you can make a case for or against either side in this spot. With that said, the Minnesota Lynx are at home and this is pretty much their season, with them on the outside looking in for a potential playoff spot. If the Lynx cant find a way to get this game, they're highly likely not going to the postseason. You have to think that motivation will lead to an inspired performance, and it's why they're slight favorites here. I'll lay the bucket with the Lynx at home.
