The Minnesota Lynx and Seattle Storm face off on Friday in a WNBA showdown at Climate Plege Arena. These two teams faced off on June 29th and it was the Lynx that were able to secure the 99-97 victory. 

Lynx Betting Preview

The Lynx sit with a 14-16 record overall and they have been up and down so far this season. Last Thursday the Lynx faced off against the Indiana Fever, and the offense wasn’t good enough as they only put up 73 points. The defense wasn’t any better giving up 91 points and that led to the defeat. The Lynx are averaging 79.6 points while their defense is giving up 84.8 points per game. The offense is ranked 9th in the league while the defense is ranked 11th. Naphessa Collier has been the top player for the Lynx averaging 21.4 points while shooting 47.9 percent from the field and 30.9 percent from behind the three point line. 

Storm Betting Preview

The Storm comes into this game with a 9-21 record overall but they have won two games in a row. In the last game against the Phoenix Mercury, the Storm scored 81 points, but even more impressive was the defense giving up only 71 points. The Storm were led by Jewell Lloyd who finished with 24 points, five rebounds, and two assists. The Storm are averaging 78.3 points while their defense is giving up 83.5 points per game. The offense is ranked 11th while the defense is ranked 7th. Jewell Lloyd has been the top player for the Storm averaging 24.1 points while shooting 37.8 percent from the field and 38.1 percent from behind the three point line. In this game if the Storm’s defense is good, the Storm should be in good shape. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The Lynx are averaging 79.6 points and I expect they are going to get back on the right track. The Storm’s defense is giving up 83.5 points per game and they are going to really struggle to slowdown the Lynx here. Naphessa Collier is going to have a big game here, and that is going to be the difference as the Lynx are going to find the success here. Back the Lynx to cover the spread here.
