Minnesota Lynx vs Phoenix Mercury Prediction

This line was a little surprising when I saw it, but the Mercury have lost 3 straight games and their defense has taken a step back. The Minnesota Lynx have also been one of the bigger surprises in the league, and they’re 5-1 ATS on the season. The Lynx are quietly playing above average ball at both ends of the floor, and they’re first in offensive field goal percentage and first in offensive three point percentage. Sometimes you just assume the oddsmakers know something and follow their lead. Give me the Lynx in a comfortable home win.
