July 22, 2022 8:00 pm EDT
The Minnesota Lynx and Connecticut Sun face off on Friday in a WNBA showdown at the Target Center. When these two teams faced off in August 2021 it was Sun that were able to secure the 82-71 victory.
The Lynx come into this game with a 10-17 record overall and in the last game against the Washington Mystics, the offense only scored 57 points and that led to the 13-point defeat. The Lynx biggest issue has been inconsistency, they can beat any team on any night, but they also can lose to any team on any night. The Lynx are averaging 82.7 points, while their defense is giving up 83.6 points per game. Sylvia Fowles has been the top player for the Lynx, averaging 15.1 points while shooting 63.3 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Connecticut Sun who sit with a 17-9 record overall and in the last game against the New York Liberty they were quite impressive. The defense locked down, giving up only 63 points, and that led to the 19-point victory. The Sun are averaging 84.3 points, while their defense is giving up 77.5 points per game. The offense is ranked 3rd in the league, while their defense is ranked 3rd in the league. The top offensive player for the Sun has been Jonquel Jones, and she is averaging 15.1 points while shooting 50.2 percent from the field and 34.4 percent from behind the three-point line.
The Lynx have been a hard team to bet on this season just because of how inconsistent they have been. These are both teams that can score, though, and I expect a ton of scoring by both teams. The Lynx are averaging 82.7 points, and they are going to score at least that in this game. Back the over to cash here.
