Minnesota Lynx vs Dallas Wings Bet Builder Tips: Wednesday, July 12th

Just one game separates the Minnesota Lynx and Dallas Wings in the standings ahead of their matchup on Wednesday night. Target Center plays host to the second matchup of the season between these teams after the Wings were victorious in late May. Both teams are desperate to finish on a high before a few days off for the All-Star break.

After losing their first six games of the season, the Lynx have more than got their season back on track. Dallas’ season has been a tale of inconsistency, with impressive wins mixed in with surprising losses.

Bookies tab the Wings as narrow favourites on the road for this one. The visitors are without Kalani Brown, Diamond DeShields and Lou Lopez Senechal, while the Lynx are missing Natalie Achonwa, Jessica Shephard, Aerial Powers and Tiffany Mitchell.

Minnesota Lynx vs Dallas Wings Preview

Wed, Jul 12. 18:00 (UK time)

Minnesota’s season numbers are slightly skewed by their abysmal start. They are seventh in net rating since losing their first six, with their -2.3 mark not being too far off Dallas’ +1.1. Missing Shephard and Mitchell weakens the Lynx, of course, but their on/off numbers show Minnesota can remain competitive without them.

The Lynx have been no more than a middle-of-the-pack defence on the season, which has remained the case over the last five games. Dallas has surprisingly posted the best defensive rating in the Association across that span – the Wings have relied on their defence to compensate for some offensive struggles, with their offensive rating sitting in the bottom four over the last five.

Facing such a strong defence, we think there’s value backing the Lynx to go under their team total. They have put up some big offensive numbers of late, but they still average below 80 points per game this season, and will not generate many extra possessions against a Dallas team which excels on the boards.

We are pairing that with the Wings’ team under. Dallas has gone under this line in six of their last seven. This game should be played at a slower pace than usual, too, with the Lynx placing ninth in pace over the last five.

These teams are relatively well-matched, but the Wings should be able to edge this game. It’s only a few days since they beat the high-flying Las Vegas Aces, who comfortably saw off Minnesota in their previous outing.

With the Lynx missing a few players, the Wings have more depth to remain competitive even when their starters are having a breather. If they can drain a few threes to complement their hard-playing defence and strong interior presence, Dallas should have enough to record their 11th win of the campaign.

  • Minnesota Lynx under 83.5 points
  • Dallas Wings under 84.5 points
