Phoenix Mercury vs Minnesota Lynx Prediction

While the Liberty and Aces are still the cream of the crop and favorites to win the WNBA, there’s been no team as impressive up to this point than the Lynx. Oddsmakers are starting to catch up as well. The Lynx are playing terrific ball at both ends of the floor. With that said, Griner and Allen have been upgraded to questionable and would make the Mercury whole with their returns. At full strength, the Mercury are far from a pushover and could put a run together. I’d watch the injury report updates before locking in anything, but if Griner and Allen play, I like the Mercury and the points.
