Mercury Betting Preview
The Mercury come into this game with a 6-17 record overall and they have been nothing but a major disappointment so far this season. In the last game against the Atlanta Dream the offense only managed 65 points and that led to the 13 points defeat. The Mercury were led by Brittney Griner who finished with 16 points and seven rebounds. It has been announced though that Griner is going to miss the next two games so she can focus on her mental health. The Mercury are averaging 75.8 points while their defense is giving up 83.5 points per game. The offense is ranked 12th while the defense is ranked 12th. The Mercury are going to have their hands full without Griner in the lineup.
Sky Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is the Sky who sit with a 9-15 record overall and they are coming off a very disappointing loss in the last game. The Sky made a bit of a comeback in the second half, but it was a little too late as they ended up losing by nine points. Kahleah Cooper was the top player finishing with 17 points, eight rebounds, and two assists. The Sky are averaging 78.1 points while their defense is giving up 82.5 points per game. Copper has been the top player for the Sky averaging 18.6 points while shooting 44.7 percent from the field and 40.2 percent from behind the three point line.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Mercury already had issues this season and now with the Mercury not having Griner, they are going to have some major issues again in this game. The Sky’s defense is giving up 82.5 points per game, but they are going to be better than that here. Phoenix is going to really struggle to get any type of offense going here, and that is going to be the difference. Back the Sky against the spread.
