2 units on Game Total OVER 149.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
Minnesota's offense is clicking while riding this six-game win streak. And they've had two full days off before playing this one, so their legs are rested. The situation is the same for New York, too with two full days off. Third-place New York is still battling for a playoffs spot in the tightly bunched East. The Liberty is one game behind Connecticut and one ahead of Atlanta and has a strong offense led by Cappie Pondexter and Plenette Pierson. In fact, four Liberty players are averaging in double figures, led by guard Pondexter - the league's fifth-leading scorer at 18.2 points per game. The OVER is 5-1 in the Lynx's last six games playing on two days of rest and I see an up-tempo battle with all these offensive weapons. Play this one OVER the total.
