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

The Connecticut Sun look for a big road victory to build on their four-game winning streak. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 86.8 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 81.1 points on 44.1 percent shooting. Chiney Ogwumike is averaging 14.4 points and 7.4 rebounds while Courtney Williams is averaging 12.7 points and 3.3 assists. Jasmine Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Alyssa Thomas is dishing 4.3 assists. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 36.4 percent from beyond the arc and 73.7 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have split their last six road games.

The Dallas Wings need a victory here in order to snap a five-game losing streak. The Dallas Wings are averaging 87.2 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 83.4 points on 43.3 percent shooting. Elizabeth Cambage is averaging 22.8 points and 9.6 rebounds while Skylar Diggins-Smith is averaging 18 points and 6.2 assists. Allisha Gray is dishing 2.5 assists and Azura Stevens is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The Dallas Wings are shooting 30 percent from beyond the arc and 79 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.8 rebounds per game. The Dallas Wings have lost three straight home games.

The Sun are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games, 19-7 ATS in their last 26 Wednesday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Wings are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Dallas and the over is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings.

The Connecticut Sun just beat the Dallas Wings by 17 points two weeks ago and have won eight of the last 10 meetings overall. The Sun are also heating up at the right time, which includes outscoring teams by 13.2 points in their last five games. The Wings are falling apart after their hot streak, and they're being outscored by 8.2 points while allowing 91.6 points on 49.9 percent shooting in their last five games. It also doesn't help that Skylar Diggins-Smith is questionable with a head injury. I have to lay the reasonable chalk.

Connecticut Sun -4
