The Dallas Wings and Connecticut Sun meet Sunday in WNBA action at the Mohegan Sun Arena.
The Dallas Wings look for a win after winning four of their last six games. The Dallas Wings are averaging 70.8 points on 38.7 percent shooting and allowing 75 points on 41.4 percent shooting. Arike Ogunbowale is averaging 16.1 points and 2.5 rebounds while Kayla Thornton is averaging 10.8 points and 1.8 assists. Allisha Gray is dishing 2.6 assists and Glory Johnson is grabbing 5.5 rebounds. The Dallas Wings are shooting 31.7 percent from beyond the arc and 81.3 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 34.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.3 rebounds per game. The Dallas Wings have lost 11 of their last 12 road games.
The Connecticut Sun look to stay hot after winning nine of their last 11 games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 78.6 points on 41.1 percent shooting and allowing 75.9 points on 43.1 percent shooting. Jonquel Jones is averaging 15 points and 10.4 rebounds while Courtney Williams is averaging 11.8 points and 3.4 assists. Jasmine Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Alyssa Thomas is dishing 3.1 assists. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 34.6 percent from beyond the arc and 69.7 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 28.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.7 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have won each of their last six home games.
The Wings are 6-15 ATS in their last 21 vs. Eastern Conference, 5-15 ATS in their last 20 road games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 Sunday games. The Sun are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games following a ATS loss, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings in Connecticut and the under is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 3-1-2 in Wings last 6 overall. The under is 12-5 in Sun last 17 games playing on 1 days rest.
The Dallas Wings have been awful on the road this season and the Connecticut Sun are one of the better home teams in the league. The problem is the Sun have been shaky as of late despite recent victories, as they're losing their last five games by an average of 3.4 points and are allowing 46.6 percent shooting from the field. The Wings also won the last meeting outright as nine-point underdogs. I'll grab the points if forced to pick this game.
