Shane’s Free Pick
The Lynx are going to keep this game close. I expect the Lynx’s offense is going to find success in this game, and although they might not win this game, they are getting too many points. The Lynx are going to get a big game from Collier, and that is going to be the difference as they are going to keep this game close. Back the Lynx against the spread here. They will keep it within three or four points.
