The Connecticut Sun continue to pile up the losses and are as cold right now as they were hot earlier in the season. The Sun also aren't covering during these losses, especially on the road. The Los Angeles Sparks are outscoring teams by 9.1 points at home this season and have been covering machines at home regardless of the number. Just on trends alone, you have to like the Sparks to win this game and cover the somewhat number. The Sparks are too consistent at home, while the Sun are ice cold and aren't providing betting value at the moment.
