The Connecticut Sun need a win here after a rough 0-3 start to the WNBA season. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 77 points on 41.2 percent shooting and allowing 80.7 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Jasmine Thomas is averaging 16 points and four assists while Morgan Tuck is averaging 15.3 points and 6.3 rebounds.

The Lynx are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Sun are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games, 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games playing on 2 days rest and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Lynx are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The Connecticut Sun may be 0-3, but their last two losses were on the road against the Lynx and Fever, and they were decided by a combined four points. Covering is all we care about in this line of work. The Connecticut Sun also have beaten the Lynx in three of the last five meetings, and Minnesota is just 1-3 ATS this season despite a 4-0 SU start. This seems like a good spot to take the home team and the points.
