Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Lynx and Atlanta Dream meet Tuesday in WNBA action at the McCamish Pavilion.

The Minnesota Lynx look for a feel good victory here to get a game above a .500 record. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 77 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 76.8 points on 40.1 percent shooting. Sylvia Fowles is averaging 17.5 points and 12.8 rebounds while Maya Moore is averaging 15.3 points and 6.3 rebounds. Seimone Augustus is the third double-digit scorer and Rebekkah Brunson is grabbing 8.5 rebounds. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 28.1 percent from beyond the arc and 77.3 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 30.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.2 rebounds per game. The Minnesota Lynx have split their last eight road games.

The Atlanta Dream also need a victory here after a slow 1-2 start to the season. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 76.3 points on 36.2 percent shooting and allowing 80.7 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Tiffany Hayes is averaging 16.7 points and 2.3 assists while Angel McCoughtry is averaging 14 points and 5.7 rebounds. Brittney Sykes is the third double-digit scorer and Renee Montgomery is dishing 3.3 assists. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 29.8 percent from beyond the arc and 73 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 28.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream have lost five of their last seven home games.

The Lynx are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Dream are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 Tuesday games, 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Lynx are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Atlanta, 19-7 ATS in the last 26 meetings and the over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.

The Minnesota Lynx are off to a slow start, but we know it's only a matter of time before thigns turn around for the best team in the league. The Atlanta Dream have a better roster than they did a season ago, but this offense is downright brutal. Nobody can score the basketball consistently, the turnovers pile up and there's just no consistency right now. If the real Lynx show up, this has blowout written all over it.

Pick:
Minnesota Lynx -7
