The Dallas Wings need a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Dallas Wings are averaging 70 points on 38.4 percent shooting and allowing 75.2 points on 42.3 percent shooting.

The Mercury are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 2 days rest, 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. Western Conference and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Wings are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Mercury are 4-12 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Dallas. The under is 21-8 in Wings last 29 overall. The under is 6-1 in Mercury last 7 overall.
The Phoenix Mercury just beat the Wings a couple of days ago and have won seven of the last 10 meetings against them overall. While the Wings play their best ball by far at home, they're still winning those games by an average of just 0.4 points and are shooting 39.6 percent from the field. While up and down, the Phoenix Mercury are far more balanced and they win this game easily if any consistent offense takes place. In a near toss-up, give me the Mercury on the road.
