The Connecticut Sun and Atlanta Dream meet Sunday in WNBA action at the State Farm Arena.

The Connecticut Sun look for their second road victory to build on their 4-1 record. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 82.2 points on 39.8 percent shooting and allowing 74.8 points on 42.5 percent shooting. Jonquel Jones is averaging 17 points and 13 rebounds while Courtney Williams is averaging 13.4 points and 3.6 assists. Jasmine Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Alyssa Thomas is grabbing eight rebounds. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 32.1 percent from beyond the arc and 76 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 27.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have won four of their last six road games.

The Atlanta Dream need a victory here in order to snap a three-game losing streak. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 71.5 points on 37.6 percent shooting and allowing 85.5 points on 46.5 percent shooting. Brittney Sykes is averaging 11.5 points and 2.5 assists while Jessica Breland is averaging 9.8 points and 7.5 rebounds. Renee Montgomery is dishing three assists and Nia Coffey is grabbing 4.3 rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 24.7 percent from beyond the arc and 70.9 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream have won five of their last seven home games.

The Sun are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS win, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Dream are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Sun are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Atlanta and 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The under is 18-6 in Dream last 24 home games. The under is 10-4 in Sun last 14 road games.

The Atlanta Dream have been absolutely awful to start the season at both ends of the court and it's to the point I want nothing to do with them until they make some sort of progress. The Dream have shown no scoring depth and very little defense. A team like the Connecticut Sun that can shoot the ball at a very high percentage should be able to have a field day in this game. I'll lay the reasonable chalk. 

Pick:
Connecticut Sun -4.5
