The Lynx are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Sky are 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Lynx are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Lynx continue to prove they're the team to beat in the WNBA and have flexed their muscle most on the road. The Sky have more to play for in this game and have the potential to win, but they're far too inconsistent and have beaten the Lynx just three times in the last seven tries. Give me Minnesota and the reasonable line.
