The Connecticut Sun need a win after splitting their last six games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 77.4 points on 42.1 percent shooting and are allowing 74.3 points on 42.8 percent shooting. Alex Bentley is averaging 16.8 points and 2.2 assists while Kelsey Bone is averaging 15.2 points and six rebounds. Alyssa Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Camille Little is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Connecticut Sun are riding a three-game losing streak and have allowed a combined 265 points in those games. The Sun are allowing 33.5 percent shooting from deep and need to get back to balanced basketball if they’re going to break out of this funk. Three of the Sun’s four losses have come on their home court.
The Lynx are 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Sun are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games. The Lynx are 5-2-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Connecticut.
The Connecticut Sun are far better than what they've shown as of late. Remember, just a couple of weeks ago, the Sun were considered one of the best teams in the league. The Suns have done a great job of covering numbers all season and at home, I like the value of the free buckets.
