The Connecticut Sun have he pieces to rebound from a rough start, but the bottom line is they're playing horrible basketball and have been shaky at best on the defensive end. The Atlanta Dream have issues of their own, but they've been in some close games and have enough scoring punch to hang around. I'm not laying chalk with the Sun and their 1-6 start. Give me the Dream and the free buckets.
