The Connecticut Sun look to continue their hot start by getting their third straight win. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 70 points on 37.3 percent shooting and are allowing 69.3 points on 36.6 percent shooting. Alex Bentley is averaging 16.7 points and two assists while Kelsey Bone is averaging 13 points and 6.7 rebounds. Alyssa Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Camille Little is grabbing 4.3 rebounds. The Connecticut Sun continue to play great defense, which includes holding teams to just 20.5 percent shooting from beyond the arc. The Sun's still have a ways to go, but they’ve been the biggest surprise out of the gate. All three of the Sun’s games so far have been decided by five or less points.
The Dream are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record.. The Sun are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest. The Dream are 0-7 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Connecticut.
I picked the Dream to win it all this season, and it seems like they're starting to turn the corner a bit after a slow start in their first two games. I like Atlanta to keep rolling and cover the small number on the road.
