Western Conference Teams Look to Break Slump
The Seattle Storm and Minnesota Lynx will try to improve their spots when they battle for the first time Tuesday. Both are tied for fourth in the Western Conference with a 4-9 record, but according to WNBA odds, Minnesota is favored in the matchup.
Storm Stops Skid
Seattle put an end to its two-game losing streak after a stronger offensive outing help it defeat the Phoenix Mercury.
After averaging 73.5 points in their last two losses, the Storm scored 97 points on 47.1% shooting in their win over Phoenix.
Seattle was led by Jewell Loyd, who scored 24 points, while three other players reached double figures as well.

Despite the Storm’s better offensive performance, it came against the last-place defense in the league, so bettors may want to see if they can continue it against the Lynx before taking a look at WNBA live betting odds.
Lynx Drop Another
Minnesota lost its second game in three outings after its offense struggled against Las Vegas.
The Lynx are last in the WNBA in scoring, averaging 75.7 points a game and 65.7 in their last three.
Although Napheesa Collier scored 21 points in Minnesota’s last game, she was the only player in double figures, with Dorka Juhasz the next-highest scorer with eight points.
All three of the Lynx’ last opponents were in the top four of the WNBA in defense, however, they will still need to show some offensive improvement before becoming reliable WNBA picks.
