The Los Angeles Sparks will play their fourth straight road game, and at some point all that traveling takes its toll, especially this early in the season. The Connecticut Sun haven't played in a week, and they're much better than what they showed in their season opener. In fact, the Sun are probably the best team on paper, and you can make a case this should be their year to win the title. With all that said, give me the Sun at home to make a statement. I'll lay the chalk.
