The Tulsa Shock need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Tulsa Shock are averaging 79.1 points on 39.3 percent shooting and are allowing 75.2 points on 43.2 percent shooting. Riquna Williams is averaging 14.9 points and 2.4 assists while Odyssey Sims is averaging 14.7 points and 3.8 rebounds. Plenette Pierson is grabbing 4.8 rebounds and Karima Christmas is dishing 1.7 assists. The Tulsa Shock are coming off a loss to the Stars in which they scored just 58 points and shot 30.9 percent from the field. The Shock have really struggled at both ends ever since Skylar Diggins got hurt. The Shock are undefeated on their home court this season.
The Lynx are 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 games playing on 1 days rest and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 road games. The Shock are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Lynx are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Tulsa.
The over has hit in seven of the last 10 meetings between these two teams. There were also a ton of points scored in the first two meetings this season. While Tulsa has struggled to win as of late, it's still a team that can light it up offensively. I like the over in this match.
