The Minnesota Lynx look for another victory to build on their 2-1 start to the season. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 75.3 points on 40.9 percent shooting and allowing 80 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Sylvia Fowles is averaging 14 points and 12 rebounds while Napheesa Collier is averaging 14 points and 4.3 assists. Damiris Dantas is the third double-digit scorer and Shenise Johnson is grabbing two rebounds. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 28.8 percent from beyond the arc and 82.8 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 27.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.7 rebounds per game.
The Connecticut Sun need a victory here to rebound from a rough 0-3 start. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 78 points on 38.5 percent shooting and allowing 84 points on 45 percent shooting. DeWanna Bonner is averaging 27.3 points and 4.3 assists while Alyssa Thomas is averaging 19.3 points and 12.3 rebounds.

The Lynx are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS win. The Sun are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference, 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games. The under is 5-2 in Lynx last 7 overall. The over is 7-3 in Sun last 10 games as a favorite. The Lynx are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Connecticut and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
While the Connecticut Sun are better than what they've shown through three games, I'm not laying chalk with a winless team that's shown no sign no life offensively. The Minnesota Lynx are a veteran bunch that has found ways to win so far. Give me the points.
