The Seattle Storm and Connecticut Sun meet Sunday in WNBA action at the Mohegan Sun Arena.
The Seattle Storm look for another win after winning three of their last four games. The Seattle Storm are averaging 76.5 points on 43.3 percent shooting and allowing 74.6 points on 43.8 percent shooting. Natasha Howard is averaging 19.5 points and 9.4 rebounds while Jewell Loyd is averaging 16 points and 3.3 assists. Jordin Canada is dishing 5.3 assists and Alysha Clark is grabbing 4.8 rebounds. The Seattle Storm are shooting 29.3 percent from beyond the arc and 81.3 percent from the free throw line. The Seattle Storm are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.9 rebounds per game. The Seattle Storm have split their last six road games.
The Connecticut Sun look to stay hot while building on their five-game winning streak. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 80.5 points on 40.3 percent shooting and allowing 73.6 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Jonquel Jones is averaging 17.8 points and 12.1 rebounds while Courtney Williams is averaging 13.9 points and 3.6 assists. Alyssa Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Jasmine Thomas is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 33.5 percent from beyond the arc and 73.9 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 25.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.5 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have won their last 11 home games.
The Storm are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest, 14-6 ATS in their last 20 road games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Sun are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games. The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Connecticut and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Sun last 7 home games. The under is 5-2-1 in Storm last 8 overall.
The Connecticut Sun have probably been the most impressive team up to this point and have been deadly at home where they're winning by an average of 11.5 points while shooting 45.6 percent from the field. The Seattle Storm have spent all year on the road and have more than held their own, winning three of their last six tries and being outscored by just an average of 0.2 points. If the Storm have proven anything this season it's that they're going to compete even if without their top-two players. This line feels a little steep to me.
