The Sun are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Mystics are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference, 9-3 ATS in their last 12 Tuesday games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games. The Sun are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Washington, 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the under is 23-9 in the last 32 meetings in Washington.
The Connecticut Sun aren't the same team they were to start the season and have been awful on the road this season. It also doesn't help the Sun are likely once again without on their best players in Alyssa Thomas. The Washington Mystics have been hit or miss this season, but they have the offense that makes them worthy of betting on whenever getting points or laying a small line. At home against a slumping Connecticut squad, and I'm backing the Mystics.
