The Dallas Wings are allowing 33.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.9 rebounds per game. The Dallas Wings have lost three of their last five road games.
The Minnesota Lynx need a victory here after losing five of their last seven games. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 78.4 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 79.5 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Maya Moore is averaging 17.8 points and 1.9 assists while Sylvia Fowles is averaging 17.9 points and 11.8 rebounds.

The Wings are 34-16-3 ATS in their last 53 Tuesday games. The Lynx are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. Western Conference and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Lynx are in full struggle mode and the injury to Seimone Augustus doesn't help matters. The Dallas Wings are finding some consistency and now look to take that success on the road where the play has dropped off. I'm still laying the chalk with the Lynx. It's only a matter of time before Minnesota snaps out of this funk, as there's too much talent and experience. The Wings haven't been a good road team yet and aren't shooting the ball as well as you'd expect. I look for the Lynx to dig deep and get a much needed victory here.
