The Minnesota Lynx and Connecticut Sun face off on Sunday in a WNBA showdown in Game 2 of their first round WNBA playoff series at Mohegan Sun Arena. In the first game of this series it was the Sun that were able to secure the 90-60 victory. 

Lynx Betting Preview

The biggest issue for the Lynx all season has been the inconsistency and it was no different in the first game. At the end of the first quarter, they were only down by two points, but the defense really started to struggle then and it was a blowout loss. Kayla McBride finished with 16 points, three rebounds, and three assists. Naphessa Collier finished with 14 points and she’s going to need to be a lot better here. The Lynx are averaging 80.2 points while their defense is giving up 85 points per game. Collier has been the top player and is averaging 21.5 points per game. 

Sun Betting Preview

The Sun came into this series expecting to take care of business and they sure looked good in the first game. The Sun scored 90 points in the first game and they will no doubt try to push the pace again in this game. The Sun used a balanced attack with five different players finishing with at least 12 points. DeWanna Bonner had a strong game finishing with 17 points, 15 rebounds, and six assists. The Sun are averaging 82.7 points while their defense is giving up 79 points per game. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The Lynx struggled in the first game, but I don’t think they are going to laydown here. The Lynx still have Naphessa Collier and she’s going to be a whole lot better in this game. Look for the Lynx to find more success with the offense. The Lynx might still lose this game, but Minnesota is going to cover the spread. Back the Lynx against the spread. 

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