Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

The Connecticut Sun and Dallas Wings meet Sunday in WNBA action at the College Park Center.

The Connecticut Sun need a nice road victory here to get a game above a .500 record. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 85.1 points on 44.8 percent shooting and allowing 81.8 points on 44.1 percent shooting. Chiney Ogwumike is averaging 15.1 points and 7.7 rebounds while Courtney Williams is averaging 12.4 points and 2.9 assists. Jasmine Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Alyssa Thomas is dishing 4.4 assists. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 34.7 percent from beyond the arc and 74.3 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 36 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.1 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have lost four of their last six road games.

The Dallas Wings look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Dallas Wings are averaging 88.5 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 82.9 points on 42.6 percent shooting. Elizabeth Cambage is averaging 22 points and 9.5 rebounds while Skylar Diggins-Smith is averaging 18.4 points and 6.5 assists. Allisha Gray is dishing 2.1 assists and Azura Stevens is grabbing 4.1 rebounds. The Dallas Wings are shooting 31.3 percent from beyond the arc and 79.7 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 33.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.3 rebounds per game. The Dallas Wings have won five straight home games.

The Sun are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Wings are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Dallas and the over is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings.

The Connecticut Sun continue to play bad basketball and show very little signs of turning things around. The Sun now go on the road where they have failed to cover nine of their last 12 games. The Wings return home where they are outscoring teams by 11.9 points on the season and their only poor recent result was a loss to the Chicago Sky, but I don't put a ton of stock into that considering they were on the end of a back to back. The Dallas Wings have also covered 10 of their last 14 games as a favorite. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the home team here.

Pick:
Dallas Wings -4
