The Dallas Wings and Minnesota Lynx meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the IMG Academy.
The Dallas Wings need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Dallas Wings are averaging 79.2 points on 41 percent shooting and allowing 83.5 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Arike Ogunbowale is averaging 21.5 points and 2.7 assists while Allisha Gray is averaging 11.6 points and 4.3 rebounds. Satou Sabally is the third double-digit scorer and Tyasha Harris is dishing three assists. The Dallas Wings are shooting 31.6 percent from beyond the arc and 77 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 33.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.5 rebounds per game.
The Minnesota Lynx look for a win after splitting their last four games. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 80.3 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 75.1 points on 42.5 percent shooting. Napheesa Collier is averaging 14.9 points and 3.3 assists while Sylvia Fowles is averaging 14.6 points and 9.7 rebounds. Crystal Dangerfield is the third double-digit scorer and Damiris Dantas is grabbing 5.1 rebounds. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 80.3 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 32.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.3 rebounds per game.
The Wings are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games. The Lynx are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference, 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 7-2 in Wings last 9 overall. The over is 5-1 in Lynx last 6 overall.
The Dallas Wings still can't be trusted when playing against better competition, and their lack of consistent shooting is the reason they often fall on the short end of the stick. The Minnesota Lynx have been one of the better covering teams this season and are one of those clubs that usually beats up on the teams they're supposed to beat up on. I'll lay the reasonable number with the Lynx.
