The Shock are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Sun are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 Wednesday games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 home games. The Shock are 11-4-1 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Connecticut.
The Sun have beaten the Shock in four of the last six meetings, and they've played their best ball this season at home. The Shock continue to stink it up on the defnesive end and have looked bad on the road for much of the season. I like the Sun to win this game and cover the reasonable number.
