Free WNBA Pick: Minnesota Lynx -2.5

Minnesota is coming off two consecutive losses but both were against the first-place Connecticut Sun and the Lynx played well despite losing. Chicago is coming off a disappointing loss at home to Dallas, is likely to play without the injured Candace Parker and the Sky has failed to cover the number in five of its last six. Minnesota has covered the number in five of its last seven and the Lynx’ inside game led by Sylvia Fowles and Napheesa Collier will give Chicago defenders fits in the paint. Final Score Prediction, Minnesota Lynx win and cover ATS 81-70.
