The San Antonio Stars and Connecticut Sun meet Sunday in WNBA action at the Mohegan Sun Arena.
The San Antonio Stars could use another win here after splitting their last four games.

Kayla McBride is averaging 15.7 points and 2.3 assists while Monique Currie is averaging 11.8 points and 4.8 rebounds. Moriah Jefferson is the third double-digit scorer and Isabelle Harrison is grabbing 5.2 rebounds.

The San Antonio Stars are allowing 33.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.6 rebounds per game. The San Antonio Stars have lost five of their last six road games.
The Connecticut Sun look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 86.4 points on 45.8 percent shooting and allowing 82 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Jonquel Jones is averaging 16.1 points and 11.6 rebounds while Jasmine Thomas is averaging 14.9 points and five assists.

The Stars are 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 road games, 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 Sunday games and 15-6 ATS in their last 21 vs. Eastern Conference. The Sun are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 20-6 ATS in their last 26 games playing on 2 days rest and 37-17-2 ATS in their last 56 games overall. The Stars are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Connecticut, 1-6-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings and the under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
Connecticut has beaten San Antonio twice this season and the last meeting wasn't close at all. When you add in the way the Sun are playing, you get this large number. However, the Stars have been covering machines on the road this season and their two victories this season have come in their last four games. So, if forced to pick this game, I'll take the points.
