The Connecticut Sun are desperate for a victory after a brutal 1-7 start to the season. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 76.9 points on 41 percent shooting and allowing 85.6 points on 46.6 percent shooting. Jasmine Thomas is averaging 11.3 points and 4.9 assists while Camille Little is averaging 11 points and 3.1 rebounds.

The Storm are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Friday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference. The Sun are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Connecticut.
Both of these clubs are in bad shape and desperate for a victory. It’s tough to give either team the edge considering how bad and shaky both teams have played so far this season. So, I’m going to side with the Sun at home simply because they’re getting a free bucket. If Conneticut can’t win this game, it may not win for a while.
