The Washington Mystics and Minnesota Lynx meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the Target Center.
The Washington Mystics look for another win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Washington Mystics are averaging 85.9 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 76.8 points on 42.6 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 16.9 points and 8.2 rebounds while Kristi Toliver is averaging 11.7 points and 5.7 assists. Emma Meesseman is the third double-digit scorer and Ariel Atkins is dishing 1.5 assists. The Washington Mystics are shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc and 85.9 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Mystics are allowing 33.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.6 rebounds per game. The Washington Mystics have won five of their last six road games.
The Minnesota Lynx look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 76.1 points on 43.3 percent shooting and allowing 74.5 points on 42.5 percent shooting. Odyssey Sims is averaging 15.3 points and 5.4 assists while Sylvia Fowles is averaging 14.3 points and 9.6 rebounds. Napheesa Collier is the third double-digit scorer and Danielle Robinson is dishing four assists. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 32.4 percent from beyond the arc and 78 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 32.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.8 rebounds per game. The Minnesota Lynx have split their last six home games.
The Mystics are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Lynx are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Mystics are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Minnesota and 2-7 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The under is 5-1 in Lynx last 6 overall. The over is 4-1 in Mystics last 5 overall.
The Minnesota Lynx have won nine of the last 10 meetings against the Mystics and have covered seven of the last nine. The problem is these are two different teams this season, and the Mystics have played some of their best ball this year on the road. The Washington Mystics have not only won five of their last six on the road, but they win by an average of 5.7 points while shooting 44.4 percent from the field. I'll take the better team and the reasonable chalk.
