The Mercury come into this game with a 3-11 record overall but they are coming off a victory in the last game.

Shane’s Free Pick

Both of these teams are coming off impressive victories, but I have been more impressed with the Lynx. Collier would be getting MVP consideration if she was on a better team, and she’s going to have a big game here. The Mercury aren’t going to be keeping up and the Lynx are going to get the job done here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
