Mercury Betting Preview
The Mercury comes into this game with a 6-19 record overall and they are coming off another loss in the last game. The Mercury gave up only nine points in the 4th quarter, but it still wasn’t enough as they were defeated 72-71. The Mercury were led by Diana Taurasi who finished with 29 points, five rebounds, and three assists. The Mercury are averaging 76 points while their defense is giving up 83.9 points per game. The offense is ranked 12th in the league while the defense is ranked 8th. Brittney Griner has stepped away from the Mercury to focus on her mental health and it’s unclear when she’s going to be back.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Mercury’s defense is giving up 83.9 points per game and they are going to really struggle to defend again in this game. Without Griner, I don’t trust the Mercury offense to find success, and they just aren’t going to score enough to keep this game close. This will be a blowout victory by the Dream. Back the Dream against the spread.
