The Connecticut Sun and New York Liberty meet Monday in WNBA action at the IMG Academy.
The Connecticut Sun look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 79.3 points on 43.1 percent shooting and allowing 79.4 points on 45.2 percent shooting. DeWanna Bonner is averaging 17.8 points and 3.4 assists while Alyssa Thomas is averaging 15.1 points and nine rebounds. Jasmine Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Brionna Jones is grabbing 5.4 rebounds. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 31.9 percent from beyond the arc and 72.1 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 33.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.6 rebounds per game.
The New York Liberty need a win after losing eight of their last nine games. The New York Liberty are averaging 74.1 points on 38 percent shooting and allowing 89.1 points on 46.4 percent shooting. Sabrina Ionescu is averaging 18.3 points and four assists while Layshia Clarendon is averaging 12.5 points and 2.9 rebounds. Kia Nurse is the third double-digit scorer and Amanda Zahui B. is grabbing 9.1 rebounds. The New York Liberty are shooting 29.8 percent from beyond the arc and 83.3 percent from the free throw line. The New York Liberty are allowing 38.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.9 rebounds per game.
The Sun are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Liberty are 8-20-1 ATS in their last 29 Tuesday games, 7-18-2 ATS in their last 27 vs. Eastern Conference and 19-40-3 ATS in their last 62 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Sun last 5 overall. The over is 6-2 in Liberty last 8 overall. The Sun are 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The New York Liberty continue to lose games and fail to cover, so it's tough to get behind them even when getting these monster lines. The Connecticut Sun have shown improved play over the last couple of weeks and have covered four of their last five games. Big number, but the Liberty are on the wrong side more than not, so I'm not worried about it.
