The Sun are in danger of falling under .500 for the first time this season. The Sun are 4-5 SU on their home court and have lost four of their last five.
The Stars are 15-6 ATS in their last 21 vs. Eastern Conference and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Sun are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 vs. Western Conference and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Stars are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Connecticut and 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings overall.
I keep thinking that the Sun are going to turn things around eventually. Even if it doesn't happen, they should be able to win this game against a team that was crushed by the Mystics and allowed the Sparks to comeback after trailing by double digits. I like the Sun here.
