Lynx Betting Preview
The Lynx sit with a 12-13 record overall but they are coming off two impressive victories. In the last game against the New York Liberty, the Lynx were able to secure the 88-83 victory. The thing that made the last win even more impressive was they did it without Naphessa Collier who is the best player on the squad. Collier is also going to miss this game. Kayla McBride had a strong game finishing with 26 points, five rebounds, and four assists. Diamond Miller finished with 22 points, five rebounds, and two assists. The Lynx are averaging 80.2 points while their defense is giving up 85.4 points per game. The offense is ranked 8th while the defense is ranked 10th. Without Collier going in this game it’s going to need to be a balanced attack.
Sun Betting Preview
The Sun currently sit with an 18-6 record overall and they are coming off another victory in the last game. The Sun scored 88 points against the Dallas Wings and that was enough to win by five points. DeWanna Bonner had quite the game finishing with 32 points, eight rebounds, and four assists. The Sun are averaging 84 points while their defense is giving up 78.6 points per game. The offense is ranked 5th while the defense is ranked 1st. In this game the defense is going to need to be good. Bonner has been the top player averaging 18.8 points while shooting 42.8 percent from the field. Brionna Jones is still out for the Sun.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Lynx have been playing well, even without having Collier, but thiey are going to meet their match here. The Sun’s offense is going to have no issue, but I also expect their defense is going to step up, and that is going to be the difference here. The Lynx are going to have some major issues scoring here, and it will be the Sun that are going to get the job done here. Back the Sun against the spread.
