The Dallas Wings and Minnesota Lynx meet Thursday in WNBA action at the Target Center.
The Dallas Wings look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Dallas Wings are averaging 70.7 points on 38.6 percent shooting and allowing 75.1 points on 41.6 percent shooting. Arike Ogunbowale is averaging 16.4 points and 2.4 rebounds while Kayla Thornton is averaging 10.6 points and 1.8 assists. Allisha Gray is dishing 2.6 assists and Glory Johnson is grabbing 5.6 rebounds. The Dallas Wings are shooting 31.9 percent from beyond the arc and 80.7 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 34.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.1 rebounds per game. The Dallas Wings have lost 12 of their last 13 road games.
The Minnesota Lynx also need a win after losing eight of their last 11 games. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 77 points on 44.5 percent shooting and allowing 76.1 points on 43.1 percent shooting. Odyssey Sims is averaging 14.9 points and 5.4 assists while Sylvia Fowles is averaging 13.8 points and 9.1 rebounds. Napheesa Collier is the third double-digit scorer and Danielle Robinson is dishing four assists. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 32.6 percent from beyond the arc and 77.9 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 33 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.8 rebounds per game. The Minnesota Lynx have split their last eight home games.
The Wings are 6-15-1 ATS in their last 22 games following a ATS loss and 5-16 ATS in their last 21 road games. The Lynx are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 Thursday games, 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Wings are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Lynx last 5 overall. The under is 18-7-2 in Wings last 27 overall.
If the Minnesota Lynx are going to turn things around, it would probably be here considering they've won nine of the last 10 meetings against the Dallas Wings. Also, the Wings have lost 12 of their last 13 on the road where they lose by an average of 11.5 points and shoot just 37 percent from the field. The Minnesota Lynx play their best basketball at home and have still covered nine of their last 14 despite recent struggles. I have to eat the chalk in this contest.
