The Connecticut Sun and Atlanta Dream face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at Mohegan Sun Arena. When these two teams faced off on May 1st it was the Sun that secured the 94-78 victory. 

The Sun comes into this game with a 10-4 record overall, but they are coming off a loss in their last game against the Chicago Sky. The Sun were outscored 24-17 in the 4th quarter and that led to the defeat. The Sun are averaging 87.1 points, while their defense is giving up 77.9 points per game. The offense is ranked 2nd in the league, while the defense is giving up 77.9 points per game. DeWanna Bonner has been the top player for the Sun so far this season, averaging 15.3 points while shooting 44.8 percent from the field. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Dream, who sit with a 7-6 record overall, and they have lost two games in a row. In the last game against the Phoenix Mercury, the defense really struggled, giving up 90 points and that led to the two-point defeat. The Dream are averaging 75.2 points, while their defense is giving up 74.4 points per game. The offense is ranked 12th in the league, but their defense is ranked 12th. The Dream are ranked 3rd in the league in terms of pace, which makes the defense even more impressive. Rhyne Howard is having a big season, averaging 16.5 points while shooting 40.4 percent from the field. 

Overall, the Dream’s defense has been good, but when they faced off against the Sun, they gave up 94 points. I expect Connecticut is going to run up the score again here, and that is going to be the difference as the Suns get the job done. Connecticut will get close to 94 points again in this game and the over is going to cash.
