Stephen Nover's Sunday Dominator - 18-8 WNBA Run
Minnesota vs. Las Vegas,
07/21/2019 18:00 EDT,
Score: 74 - 79
Total: -110/+157 Under
Minnesota should be rested and pumped to play a strong defensive game. The Lynx last played on Wednesday when they lost, 90-79, at home to Seattle. That was the most points the Lynx have allowed all season. They had held their previous five opponents to 72 or fewer poins. The Under is 7-2 the last nine times when Minnesota has played on three or more day's rest.
Las Vegas is surrendering an average of 69.7 points in its last four games. The Aces have three players averaging 15 points. One of them, leading scorer A'Ja Wilson, isn't expected to play after suffering a sprained ankle this past Friday. Aside from Wilson, Liz Cambage and Kayla McBride, the Aces have no one else averaging double-digits.
The teams met at Minnesota on June 16. The Aces won 80-75. The teams combined to make 33 of 37 free throws for 89 percent in that game. That kind of excellent free throw shooting isn't likely to be repeated since neither team is shooting above 78.2 percent from the foul line.
