The Phoenix Mercury need a win after losing four of their last six games. The Phoenix Mercury are averaging 72.1 points on 37.4 percent shooting and are allowing 73.9 points on 41.5 percent shooting. DeWanna Bonner is averaging 19.5 points and 7.3 rebounds while Candice Dupree is averaging 14.5 points and 5.6 rebounds. Brittney Griner is grabbing 11 rebounds and Monique Currie is dishing 1.9 assists. The Phoenix Mercury are coming off a tough Saturday loss to the Minnesota Lynx in which they scored just 56 points. The good news is that the Mercury got Griner back, who posted a double-double in her opening game. The Mercury are 2-1 SU on their home court.
The Stars are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Mercury are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 2 days rest. The under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Stars have yet to play well on the road, and the Mercury are pretty close to full health with the return of Griner. While I don't love the high chalk, I expect Phoenix to win this game by double digits.
