The Stars are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 road games. The Lynx are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 vs. Western Conference and 19-6-1 ATS in their last 26 Saturday games. The Stars are 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Lynx have lost three straight, cooling off big time after a crazy start. The Stars just won their first road game Friday night, so there's some confidence there. San Antonio is still trash, but I'm not laying this many points on the table. If forced to pick, I'm taking the points.
