The oddsmakers heavily favor the Lynx to win at home and rightly so. Minnesota got a convincing win against Atlanta earlier this season and nothing has changed much to favor the Dream on Wednesday. Expect the Lynx to cover the spread for another dominating win. It should be a fairly low-scoring game, with the team total staying under 162.5 points.
