The San Antonio Stars are still looking for their first victory of the season. The San Antonio Stars are averaging 65.8 points on 36.6 percent shooting and are allowing 77.2 points on 41.5 percent shooting. Jia Perkins is averaging 14.3 points and 2.8 rebounds while Kayla McBride is averaging 13.5 points and two assists. Dearica Hamby is the third double-digit scorer and Danielle Robinson is dishing 4.8 assists. The San Antonio Stars simply aren’t getting the job done on the offensive end with limited weapons. The good news is that two of the Stars four losses have been decided by five or less points. Alex Montgomery is questionable with a foot injury.
The Lynx are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest. The Stars are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 vs. Western Conference. The Lynx are 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in San Antonio and 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
I like the over in this spot, as Minnesota is going to drop buckets on this San Antonio squad. This total is a tad bit way too low.
