The Minnesota Lynx and Atlanta Dream meet Tuesday in WNBA action at the State Farm Arena.

The Minnesota Lynx could use a win after losing five of their last six games. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 75.8 points on 43.6 percent shooting and allowing 75.3 points on 42.9 percent shooting. Sylvia Fowles is averaging 14.6 points and 1.3 assists while Odyssey Sims is averaging 14.3 points and 3.4 rebounds. Napheesa Collier is the third double-digit scorer and Danielle Robinson is dishing 3.8 assists. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 32.2 percent from beyond the arc and 78.6 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 32.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.5 rebounds per game. The Minnesota Lynx have lost four of their last six road games.

The Atlanta Dream could use a win here to snap their seven-game losing streak. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 69.5 points on 36.4 percent shooting and allowing 78.1 points on 41.4 percent shooting. Tiffany Hayes is averaging 13.2 points and 3.1 rebounds while Brittney Sykes is averaging 10.6 points and 2.6 assists. Elizabeth Williams is grabbing 6.2 rebounds and Alex Bentley is dishing 2.6 assists. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 27.7 percent from beyond the arc and 75.7 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 33 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.5 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream have lost five of their last seven home games.

The Lynx are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up loss and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest. The Dream are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 2 days rest, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Lynx are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The under is 6-2 in Lynx last 8 overall. The under is 5-2-1 in Dream last 8 overall.

The Atlanta Dream beat the Lynx last month and have won three of the last five meetings against them overall. However, the Dream are losing at home by an average of 6.8 points and shooting just 36 percent from the field. The Dream have also lost seven straight and are losing their last five games by an average of 16.6 points. Yes, the Minnesota Lynx have fallen off a bit lately as well, but it's nothing to what the Dream are going through. If forced to pick this game, it's either Lynx or pass for me. 

Pick:
Minnesota Lynx -4
