The Sun are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Lynx are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings.
This line seems way low, especially with Minnesota's ability to fill it up and the Sun's lack of defense lately. Also, the over has hit in nine of the last 13 meetings between these two teams. Take the over.
