Under 157.5

By Bryan Fonseca

There are a lot of injuries in this one.

The Lynx are unlikely to have Napheesa Collier after she suffered a recent foot injury. The Sparks won't have Cameron Brink or Lexie Brown, and Stephanie Talbot is questionable.

Ultimately, I just don't see a ton of points here.

The Sparks offense has been better of late, and Collier's absence will only help them, but the Lynx don't play high-octane basketball. They rank 10th in pace and second in defense.

Plus, they've already held the Sparks to 76 and 62 points this year. Even without Collier, we could see a game stuck in the mud tonight.

Pick: Under 157.5

Courtney Williams Over 12.5 Points

By Bryan Fonseca

Without Napheesa Collier, Courtney Williams took 16 shots in the Lynx's 74-67 win over the Mystics the last time out.

She made seven of those attempts and scored 17.

I think this line is too low. We know Kayla McBride will play an even bigger role in Minnesota's offense, but this line of 12.5 isn't taking into account the need for Williams to create at the point of attack.

She had a team-best 29.7% usage rate last game, and I think there's a healthy carryover tonight.

Pick: Courtney Williams Over 12.5 Points
