The Sun are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 vs. Western Conference and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The Shock are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 2 days rest and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Sun are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Tulsa.
The Shock are starting to find their confidence again and are coming off a monster win over the Mercury. Give me the home team and the reasonable chalk.
