The Minnesota Lynx look for another victory after beating the Connecticut Sun in their season opener. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 77 points on 41.8 percent shooting and allowing 69 points on 34.8 percent shooting. Sylvia Fowles is averaging 17 points and 18 rebounds while Shenise Johnson is averaging 13 points and one assist. Napheesa Collier is the third double-digit scorer and Crystal Dangerfield is grabbing two rebounds. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 23.5 percent from beyond the arc and 81 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 10.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40 rebounds per game.
The Seattle Storm look for another win after beating up on the New York Liberty on Saturday. The Seattle Storm are averaging 87 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 71 points on 34.8 percent shooting. Breanna Stewart is averaging 18 points and eight rebounds while Jewell Loyd is averaging 14 points and two rebounds. Sue Bird is the third double-digit scorer and Jordin Canada is grabbing four rebounds. The Seattle Storm are shooting 30.4 percent from beyond the arc and 80 percent from the free throw line. The Seattle Storm are allowing 21.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40 rebounds per game.
The Lynx are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Tuesday games. The Storm are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Lynx last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Storm last 5 overall. The Lynx are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Seattle and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
This is a lot of points to just give the Lynx in the second game of the season, but I'm more focused on the total in this one. The over has cashed in each of the last four games between the Lynx and Storm. The Seattle Storm are also coming off a game where they scored 87 points and didn't exactly shoot the ball all that great. This total seems low. Give me the over 154.5 points.
