Lynx vs Sun Prediction, Picks, Odds: Bet on WNBA Teams to Exceed Total

The Minnesota Lynx return to the postseason once again after missing it last season, and their reward is a first-round meeting with last year’s runner-up in the Connecticut Sun. The two will kick off their postseasons with a clash Wednesday, and though both will be wanting to open the series strong, WNBA odds have the Sun as a heavy favorite at home.

Lynx Stumble to Finish

Minnesota enters the postseason after falling its way to the end of the regular-season, losing four of its last six games and allowing an average of 86.1 points during that span.

Minnesota’s two wins in that time were because of it finding ways to score, as it averaged 88.5 points in that time behind Napheesa Collier’s 24.5 points per game.

The Lynx are the second-worst in the league in allowing 85 points a game, and their weaker defense is something to keep in mind for those participating in WNBA betting.

Sun Ready to Bounce Back

Although Connecticut lost its final regular-season game as well, its offense remained strong to close out the season.

The Sun won four of its final six games, averaging 80.3 points in that time, with their 58 in their loss to the Liberty dragging the number down.

Connecticut has been led by DeWanna Bonner, who has averaged 17.4 points this season. Alyssa Thomas has been key as well, averaging 15.5 points, 9.9 rebounds and 7.9 assists.

The Sun are fourth in the WNBA with 82.7 points a game on 44.5% shooting, and they should be a solid WNBA pick to have another strong game to kick off the postseason.

Lynx vs Sun Best Bet

With the sportsbook favoring Connecticut so heavily at home, where it is 13-7 this season, betting on the money line isn’t a worthy pick. Instead, bettors should take a look at the total from WNBA lines, which is set at 159.5.

The Sun’s strong offense should have no trouble scoring on a Lynx defense that has struggled to close out the regular season. Despite Minnesota falling in their latest games, in a higher-stakes game, its offense will aim to keep it closer and should be able score some as well behind the WNBA’s fourth-leading scorer in Collier.

The Sun and Lynx have combined to hit the over in two out of their four regular-season games, and should do so to open the playoff series as well in the Las Vegas odds.

Pick: Over 159.5 points (-110)
