The Dallas Wings and Connecticut Sun meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the IMG Academy.
The Dallas Wings could use a win after losing four of their last five games. The Dallas Wings are averaging 80.6 points on 41 percent shooting and allowing 84.5 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Arike Ogunbowale is averaging 20.4 points and 2.8 assists while Satou Sabally is averaging 12 points and 6.8 rebounds. Allisha Gray is the third double-digit scorer and Kayla Thornton is grabbing four rebounds. The Dallas Wings are shooting 30.4 percent from beyond the arc and 75.2 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 33.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.3 rebounds per game.
The Connecticut Sun look for a win after splitting their last four games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 81.8 points on 43.8 percent shooting and allowing 83.4 points on 45.3 percent shooting. DeWanna Bonner is averaging 18.8 points and 3.4 assists while Alyssa Thomas is averaging 15.4 points and 10 rebounds. Jasmine Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Brionna Jones is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 31.8 percent from beyond the arc and 70.3 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 36.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.5 rebounds per game.
The Wings are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog. The Sun are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 vs. Western Conference, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The under is 5-1 in Wings last 6 overall. The under is 7-1 in Sun last 8 vs. Western Conference. The Wings are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Connecticut and 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Dallas Wings should be underdogs based on their current form and struggles offensively, but I have a hard time laying chalk with the Connecticut Sun, one of the more disappointing teams up to this point. There's better options on the WNBA board, but if forced to pick, I'd side with the Wings and the buckets.
