The over is 5-1 in Sun last 6 overall. The over is 4-1 in Wings last 5 overall. The Sun are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Dallas and 11-5 ATS in the last 16 meetings.

You can make a case for either side here. The Connecticut Sun are far and away the more talented team and should win this game, but the Dallas Wings are playing at a high level and should be riding high on confidence after game 2. After two blowouts from each side, you can see this game going either way. With all that said, the Sun are the better team and that should matter in an elimination game. We saw it between the Sky and Liberty. In must win spots, the better team usually gets its act together. Give me the Sun and the reasonable chalk.

Randy’s Pick Connecticut Sun -5.5
