Odyssey Sims is averaging 15.8 points and 5.6 assists while Sylvia Fowles is averaging 14.2 points and 9.9 rebounds.

The Mercury are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games, 18-8-1 ATS in their last 27 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The Lynx are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games, 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Mercury are 5-15-2 ATS in the last 22 meetings in Minnesota and 2-13-2 ATS in the last 17 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Lynx last 5 home games. The under is 4-1 in Mercury last 5 overall.

The Phoenix Mercury are as healthy as they've been all season, but they've still been hit or miss on the road this season and are running into a Lynx squad that's won nine of the last 10 meetings. The Minnesota Lynx have been able to get back on track over the last week, and they win at home by an average of 5.5 points while shooting 44.6 percent from the field. The Lynx and their improved play should make them the play at home and the small chalk. 

Pick:
Minnesota Lynx -1.5
