Will update with trends once they're released.
The Connecticut Sun aren't to the point where I'll lay anything with them against lesser teams, but there's no doubt they're playing the better basketball at the moment and they've been improved as of late. The Indiana Fever continue to pile up the losses and aren't covering these games either despite being big favorites. The Indiana Fever are 12th in points allowed per game and field goal percentage allowed per game. It's hard to trust the Fever when playing the better teams in the league or even average teams for that matter. The Connecticut Sun fall into that boat when playing to their potential.
I'll lay the chalk with the Connecticut Sun, even if its more of a fade from the Fever more than anything.
