Result:
LOSS

Minnesota has the fourth-worst scoring offense in the WNBA, plus is ninth in field goal shooting and 11th in 3-point shooting (31%). Star forward Napheesa Collier (21.6 ppg) just came back after missing six games with a right ankle sprain, but the team was out of sync offensively in a 76-66 loss at home to New York. Minnesota is 71-49 UNDER the total against teams that shoot 36%+ from long range after 15+ games. They head to Chicago, a team that is dead-last from the free throw line (74.6%), though the defense is sixth in points allowed. Chicago has gone UNDER the total in four of its last six games. These teams last met earlier this year in a 77-66 Chicago victory that sailed UNDER by 20 points as Minnesota shot just 33.3% from the field and 25% (6-of-24) from long range. This shapes up as another game with more defense than offense. Play Minnesota/Chicago UNDER the total.
