I gave the Dallas Wings a look in game 1 because of how they entered the postseason, but they got their doors blown off to the point it's hard to find confidence in them here. The Connecticut Sun are probably the most talented team in the league, something I've said time and time again this year, and they're coming off a ridiculously impressive performance. Thick line, but I'm not stepping in front of the Sun after what we saw in the opening performance.
