Minnesota Lynx at Chicago Sky 8/21/21 - WNBA Picks & Predictions

The Minnesota Lynx look to snap a two-game losing streak when visiting the Chicago Sky on Saturday. Minnesota is 13-9 following an 82-71 loss to the Connecticut Sun on Thursday. Minnesota lost two consecutive games to Connecticut that snapped an 8-game winning streak for the Lynx. Minnesota is third in the Western Conference standings 3 ½ games behind the first-place Las Vegas Aces.

Napheesa Collier is the leading scorer and second-leading rebounder for Minnesota with averages of 16.7 points and 6.3 rebounds per game. Sylvia Fowles is the second leading scorer and the leading rebounder with averages of 16.0 points and 9.7 rebounds per game. Layshia Clarendon is the leader in assists with an average of 5.5 per game. Minnesota has five players averaging double-figures in scoring.

Chicago looks to bounce back from a loss when hosting Minnesota on Saturday. The Sky dropped to 11-11 following an 80-76 loss to the Dallas Wings on Tuesday. Chicago was led in the loss by Allie Quigley with 27 points, while Kahleah Copper scored 16 points and Azura Stevens chipped in with 14. However, Candace Parker and Copper each suffered ankle injuries, with Copper returning to play but Parker did not.

Kahleah Copper is the leading scorer for Chicago with an average of 14.1 points per game, while Candace Parker is the third leading scorer and leading rebounder with averages of 12.4 points and 8.6 rebounds per game. Courtney Vandersloot is the leader in assists with an average of 9.3 per game. Chicago has five players averaging double-figures in scoring.

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.
