The Stars are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Sun are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games. The Stars are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Connecticut and 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings overall.
Both of these teams are struggling big time, but I think it's fair to say that the Stars are the worst team in the WNBA. Also, the Sun have beaten the Stars in four straight meetings. I'll take the home team and small line.
