Minnesota Lynx vs Chicago Sky Prediction: Recent Form

The Minnesota Lynx is having a dreadful season in the Western Conference as they have misfired way too often this season which has resulted in their downfall. They have the second-worst win percentage of 31.8% as they need a humongous effort in order to get out of the jail they are stuck inside. Even though they have a negative record at home and on the road, they are slightly better off in their backyard, giving them a ray of hope on Wednesday.

The Chicago Sky have been the best team in their conference as they have been a tough nut to crack for their opponents.

Looking at their last five appearances, they are on a five-match winning streak with success against Mercury, Sun, Lynx, Aces and Sparks. They have totally won 15 games in 20 appearances so far.
