Mercury Betting Preview

The Mercury come into this game with a 6-18 record overall and they are coming off another loss in the last game. The Mercury scored 85 points but the defense gave up 104 points ot hte Chicago Sky, and that led to the defeat. Diana Taurasi had a strong game finishing with 24 points, six rebounds, and four assists. The Mercury are averaging 76.2 points while their defense is giving up 84.4 points per game. The offense is ranked 12th while the defense is ranked 8th. Brittney Griner is taking off this game as she focuses on her mental health, but it’s expected she will be back next game. 

Fever Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is the Fever who sits with a 6-19 record overall and they are trying to not be the worst team in the WNBA. On Sunday the Fever scored 62 points and the defense gave up 23 points. The top player for the Fever was Kelsey Mitchell who finished with 19 points, five assists, and one rebound. The Fever are averaging 80.6 points while their defense is giving up 85.6 points per game. The offense is ranked 7th while the defense is ranked 12th. Kelsey Mitchell has been the top layer averaging 16.4 points while shooting 41.8 percent from the field. 

Shane’s Free Pick

This is a big game for both teams as they try to climb out of the basement of the WNBA. Without Griner though, I especially don’t like the Mercury, and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. The Fever are going to find the offensive success and the Mercury aren’t going to keep close. Back the Fever against the spread. 

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