The Dallas Wings hope to win three straight games for the first time this season. The Dallas Wings are averaging 84.8 points on 39.8 percent shooting and allowing 87.6 points on 47.7 percent shooting. Odyssey Sims is averaging 16 points and 3.8 assists while Karima Christmas is averaging 14.3 points and 6.1 rebounds.

The Wings are allowing 33.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.5 rebounds per game. The Dallas Wings have lost four of their last five home games.
The Mercury are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Wings are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 21-7-2 ATS in their last 30 Tuesday games. The Mercury are 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Dallas.
Dallas just beat Phoenix on the road a couple of days ago in multiple overtimes. The Mercury also have yet to win on the road this season and have lost six straight overall. The Wings are simply a team starting to come together with Johnson and Skylar Diggins back on the court and producing. I'll gladly take the free bucket, as Dallas should win this game outright.
