Mercury Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is the Phoenix Mercury who sits with a 2-5 record overall but they are coming off a victory in the last game. The Mercury scored 85 points against the Indiana Fever and that was enough to win by three points. They outscored the Fever 26-15 in the 4th quarter and that was enough to secure the three point victory. The Mercury is averaging 80.6 points while their defense is giving up 86.4 points per game. The offense is ranked 7th in the league while the defense is ranked 12th. Brittney Griner is averaging 22.7 points while shooting 64.8 percent from the field and 25 percent from the field. In this game the defense is going to need to step up here.
Shane’s Free Pick
These are both defenses that have struggled, but I trust the Mercury’s offense a little more. The Mercury are coming off a game where they scored 85 points and they are going to have no issue running up the score again in this game. Outside of the Lloyd the Storm don’t have a lot of offensive firepower and that is going to let them down here also. Back the Mercury to cover the spread here.
