This should be a fun game between a pair of very talented teams. The Minnesota Lynx won it all two years ago, but had it taken away from them a year ago by Indiana, and I expect they will find themselves back to the finals again this season. That means they must take care of business at home vs. arguably their most notable opponent. The Sparks have been dominating at home, but have fallen on the road at 0-2, still looking for their first win. This won't be an easy place to find it as the Lynx are 30-2 here in their last 32 regular season games. The Lynx play with defensive fire here, and no team without the benefit of overtime, has reached 80 points against them in their last 13 regular season games played here. This game should have playoff intensity, which usually means defense takes center stage, and the Lynx have topped the total just one time in their last seven, on three days or more of rest. Los Angeles has now played five of their last six to the under, and have struggled here where they are just 1-5 ATS in their last six. Play is on Minnesota and the under.
