The Minnesota Lynx and Connecticut Sun face off on Tuesday in a WNBA showdown at the Mohegan Sun Arena. These two teams faced off on Sunday and it was the Lynx that won by four. 

Lynx Betting Preview

The Lynx sit with a 13-13 record overall and they have been quite impressive in the last game. Even without their best player the Lynx have been able to beat the New York Liberty and the Connecticut Sun. The Lynx in the last game scored 87 points and that was enough to win by four points. Kayle McBride finished with 19 points and three assists. The Lynx are averaging 80.5 points while their defense is giving up 85.3 points per game. The offense is ranked 8th while the defense is ranked 11th. Naphessa Collier is the top player for the Lynx but she is still dealing with an ankle sprain and she’s not expected to be able to go in this game. Diamond Miller has been the second best player this year averaging 13.2 points while shooting 41.3 percent from the field. 

Sun Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is the Connecticut Sun who sit with an 18-7 record overall but they weren’t able to do enough on Sunday to secure the win. They actually didn’t play awful, the defense just couldn’t make the plays late to secure the win. DeWanna Bonner had quite the game finishing with 31 points, five rebounds and two assists. The Sun are averaging 84 points while their defense is giving up 78.9 points per game. The offense is ranked 5th while the defense is ranked 1st. In this game the defense is going to need to step up, and be a whole lot better here. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Even without Collier, the Lynx are going to find plenty of success. The Lynx are averaging 80.5 points and they are going to find success again here. The Lynx might not do enough to win again, but this team is getting hot, and I think they are going to find success. Back the Lynx. I do also expect this game to be higher scoring and the over is also going to cash. I love both of these plays. 

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