Phoenix Looking to Bounce Back

The Phoenix Mercury and Dallas Wings will be playing the second of two straight games on Friday. Both games are in Dallas, which has given the home team a slight edge. WNBA lines favored the Wings when these teams played on Wednesday and will do so again after Dallas won the first game 84-79.

Mercury Trying to Shake Off Slow Start

This season has not started the way that the Phoenix Mercury have wanted. They have a 1-4 record and a lot of questions, beginning on the defensive end. Phoenix has allowed 86.6 points per game, which is the third-highest in the league.

Offensively, the Mercury would be a bit better with the help of the team’s two key players, Brittney Griner and Diana Taurasi. Griner averages 22.4 points per game, adding 7.8 rebounds, while Taurasi scores 1​​8.4 with 6.6 assists. However, Taurasi has not been efficient from behind the arc, taking 9.6 3-pointers per game but only shooting 27.1% on them.

With how Taurasi is shooting, it will be hard for Phoenix to find its way back into being a consistent WNBA pick. She struggled in the first game against the Wings, going 2 of 14 from behind the arc.

Offense Giving Wings an Advantage

The Dallas Wings’ offense has greatly influenced their early season success. They have averaged the second-most points per game at 84.9. The defense has sometimes let them down, changing some WNBA odds, but the offense can always be relied on to keep Dallas close.

Three-point shooting has played a massive role in Dallas’ offense, attempting the most per game (26.4). However, the Wings have not been consistently making shots from deep, only shooting 30.3% from three, the second-lowest in the league.

Still, the offense is led by Arike Ogunbowale and Satou Sabally, who have put up solid statistical performances worth of WNBA live betting. Ogunbowale averages 20.6 points per game while Sabally is on a four-game streak of double-doubles, headlining WNBA news. Sabally averages 22.4 points and 10.6 rebounds, going for 24 and 10 in the win over the Mercury.
