The Seattle Storm are averaging 65.5 points on 37.8 percent shooting and are allowing 64.5 points on 35.4 percent shooting. Renee Montgomery is averaging 14.5 points and four assists while Crystal Langhorne is averaging 11.5 points and seven rebounds. Sue Bird is dishing 3.5 assists and Alysha Clark is grabbing six rebounds. The Storm are relying on their defense that’s allowing just 22.2 percent shooting from beyond the arc in two games. However, the Storm must find another consistent scorer if it hopes to compete this season, as Montgomery and Langhorne have combined for 15 made field goals. The Storm scored just 45 points in their last game.

The Minnesota Lynx look to remain unbeaten after getting off to a quick 2-0 start. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 80.5 points on 42 percent shooting and are allowing 72 points on 38.6 percent shooting. Lindsay Whalen is averaging 21.5 points and 5.5 assists while Maya Moore is averaging 19.5 points and 6.5 rebounds. Rebekkah Brunson is grabbing 14 rebounds and Seimone Augustus is dishing 1.5 assists. The Lynx are cruising on the offensive end, as they have four double-digit scorers and are shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arc. The Lynx are also grabbing 42.5 rebounds and coming away with five blocks. The Lynx have shown why they were the favorite to win it all once again this season.
The Storm are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs. Western Conference and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games. The Lynx are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Thursday games. The Storm are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Minnesota and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Storm can't be any worse offensively than they were in the last game, and the Lynx are going to contonie dropping bucket after bucket. I like the value of the over in this matchup, as Minnesota will carry us close to this total by itself.
