The over is 3-0-1 in Sun last 4 overall. The Wings are 3-9 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
The Connecticut Sun are the better team, and as I've said in the past they're probably the best team in the league on paper. However, the Dallas Wings are hot and that includes just beating the Sun a few days ago in a similar underdog role, holding Connecticut to under 40 percent shooting from the field. The Wings also didn't even shoot close to their season average from deep, so there's room for them to get even better in this game. Expect the Connecticut Sun to be better, but I have to grab the free buckets here.
