The Connecticut Sun and Minnesota Lynx face off on the final day of the WNBA regular season at Mohegan Sun Arena. When these two teams faced off on July 24th it was the Sun that won 86-79. 

The Sun comes into this game with a 24-11 record overall, and they have won two games in a row against the Los Angeles Sparks. In the last game against the Sparks, the Sun’s offense scored 93 points and that was enough to win by 24 points. Connecticut is averaging 85.7 points, while their defense is giving up 77.6 points per game. The offense is ranked 3rd in the league, while their defense is also ranked 3rd in the league. Jonquel Jones has been the top player for the Sun, averaging 14.7 points while shooting 50.9 percent from the field and 36.9 percent from behind the three-point line. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Lynx, who sit with a 14-21 record overall. The Lynx need to win this game and get some help if they want to make the playoffs. In the last game against the Seattle Storm, the defense again struggled, giving up 96 points and that led to the blowout defeat. The Lynx are averaging 82.4 points, while their defense is giving up 83.7 points per game. The Lynx’s offense is ranked 4th in the league, while their defense is ranked 9th in the league. If the Lynx do lose this game and don’t get the help, it will be the last game in the Hall of Fame career of Sylvia Fowles. 

The Lynx have a lot more to play for in this game, and I think they are going to find a way to score. Minnesota is averaging 82.4 points per game, and they are going to run up the score here. This is going to be a close game, but the Lynx are going to find enough success to cover the spread. Back the Lynx against the spread.
