The Connecticut Sun are flexing their muscle like I said they would around this time. I've been saying all year the Sun are probably the most talented team in the league and a run is coming. Here we are. With that said, this line is complete disrespect to an experienced Mercury team that's making that playoff push and needs wins to keep their spot in the standings. The Connecticut Sun should win, especially at home, but a double-digit line is nuts. I'll take my chances with the Mercury and free buckets.
