The Connecticut Sun and Washington Mystics meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the Verizon Center.
The Connecticut Sun look for another road victory to climb out of an early 1-4 hole on the season. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 79.2 points on 40.4 percent shooting and allowing 80.6 points on 42 percent shooting. Jonquel Jones is averaging 14.6 points and 12.2 rebounds while Morgan Tuck is averaging 11.8 points and 1.4 assists. Jasmine Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Lynetta Kizer is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 39 percent from beyond the arc and 74.2 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 31.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.6 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have split their last 12 road games.
The Washington Mystics look to remain undefeated at home to build on their 3-2 start. The Washington Mystics are averaging 83.8 points on 42 percent shooting and allowing 80 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 21.2 points and five rebounds while Tayler Hill is averaging 14.2 points and 2.8 assists. Ivory Latta is dishing 1.2 assists and Kristi Toliver is grabbing 1.4 rebounds. The Washington Mystics are shooting 31.9 percent from beyond the arc and 88.6 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Mystics are allowing 40 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.4 rebounds per game. The Washington Mystics have split their last 14 home games.
The Sun are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Mystics are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games. The Sun are 1-8 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Washington, 6-13 ATS in the last 19 meetings and the over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
These games are so early, I may as well give out a pick before a line comes out because there's no point in waiting to update. The Sun picked up a nice road win on Sunday, but Connecticut has allowed no less than 79 points this season. That's bad news against an offensive powerhouse such as the Mystics, a team that's also combined for 170 points in their last two games. This feels like a contest where the Connecticut Sun could get run out of the gym if they're not careful. I like Washington here.
