The Minnesota Lynx and Indiana Fever meet Saturday in WNBA action at the IMG Academy.
The Minnesota Lynx look for a bounce back victory after winning 12 of their last 19 games. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 83.8 points on 45.2 percent shooting and allowing 80.3 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Napheesa Collier is averaging 15.8 points and 3.4 assists while Crystal Dangerfield is averaging 15.8 points and 1.9 rebounds. Sylvia Fowles is the third double-digit scorer and Damiris Dantas is grabbing six rebounds. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 37.5 percent from beyond the arc and 82.1 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 33.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.5 rebounds per game.
The Indiana Fever need a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Indiana Fever are averaging 81.5 points on 44.1 percent shooting and allowing 89.1 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 18.5 points and 2.8 assists while Tiffany Mitchell is averaging 14 points and 3.8 rebounds. Candice Dupree is the third double-digit scorer and Teaira McCowan is grabbing seven rebounds. The Indiana Fever are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 81.7 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Fever are allowing 35.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.8 rebounds per game.
The Lynx are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games as a favorite and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games. The Fever are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Lynx last 6 overall. The over is 5-1 in Fever last 6 overall..
I'm going to assume the Indiana Fever are going to get a bunch of points in this contest and that's the direction I want to be in this game. The Minnesota Lynx have fallen off defensively over their last few games and it's why they've lost three straight games and four of their last seven games overall. The Indiana Fever don't win much, but they are coming off a 10-point victory over the New York Liberty where they allowed just 39 percent shooting from the field and forced 15 turnovers. The Fever also hung with the Lynx in the previous meeting, losing by only seven points and nearly squeezing out a cover.
If we can get more than five points in this game, I want the Fever.
