The Minnesota Lynx and New York Liberty meet Tuesday in WNBA action at the Westchester County Center.

The Minnesota Lynx could use a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 76.8 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 75.3 points on 42.4 percent shooting. Sylvia Fowles is averaging 14.6 points and 1.3 assists while Odyssey Sims is averaging 14.1 points and 3.4 rebounds. Napheesa Collier is the third double-digit scorer and Danielle Robinson is dishing 3.9 assists. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc and 78.3 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 31.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.6 rebounds per game. The Minnesota Lynx have lost four of their last five road games.

The New York Liberty also need a win after losing eight of their last nine games. The New York Liberty are averaging 77.1 points on 41.2 percent shooting and allowing 84 points on 43.4 percent shooting. Tina Charles is averaging 17.2 points and 7.5 rebounds while Kia Nurse is averaging 14.7 points and two assists. Asia Durr is dishing 1.7 assists and Amanda Zahui B. is grabbing 6.8 rebounds. The New York Liberty are shooting 32 percent from beyond the arc and 79 percent from the free throw line. The New York Liberty are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.5 rebounds per game. The New York Liberty have split their last eight home games.

The Lynx are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up loss. The Liberty are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Lynx are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in New York and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The under is 29-10 in Lynx last 39 road games. The under is 4-1-1 in Liberty last 6 vs. Western Conference.

The New York Liberty are falling apart quickly, losing eight of their last nine games and losing their last five games by an average of 13.8 points while shooting just 41.5 precent from the field. Playing at home hasn't helped the Liberty much either, as they lose by an average of 5.7 points on the season. The Minnesota Lynx have been hit or miss all year, but ther issues don't measure up to what the Liberty are going through. It's Lynx or pass for me.

Pick:
Minnesota Lynx -5.5
