The Minnesota Lynx look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last 12 games. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 78.4 points on 44.5 percent shooting and allowing 77.1 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Maya Moore is averaging 18.4 points and 2.5 assists while Sylvia Fowles is averaging 16.8 points and 11.9 rebounds. Seimone Augustus is the third double-digit scorer and Rebekkah Brunson is grabbing 6.8 rebounds.

The Sky are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games. The Lynx are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Sky are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The under is 25-10 in Lynx last 35 overall and the under is 4-1 in Sky last 5 overall.
The Minnesota Lynx have shown us no reason to back them with big chalk, as they struggle to win outright as it is. However, the Lynx did just beat the Sky by 21 points a few days ago and have won six of the last nine meetings, most of which haven't been close. The Sky are also being outscored by 8.6 points on the road this season and are just 5-9 ATS this season when an underdog of at least 7.5 points. I like the Lynx to beat up Chicago in another blowout.
