The Connecticut Sun and Chicago Sky meet Sunday in game 1 of the WNBA Playoffs Second Round at the Wintrust Arena. The Connecticut Sun are coming off a 3-game series win over the Wings. The Chicago Sky are coming off a 3-game series win over the Liberty.

Jonquel Jones is averaging 16.7 points and 1 assist, while DeWanna Bonner is averaging 14 points and 2.7 rebounds.

Kahleah Cooper is averaging 18.7 points and 1.3 assists, while Candace Parker is averaging 14.3 points and 11.7 rebounds.

The Sun are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 road games and 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Sky are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The over is 5-2 in Sun last 7 overall. The under is 4-1 in Sky last 5 overall. The Sun are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Chicago and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Chicago Sky are going to be favored for obvious reasons as they're the best team, the defending champs and at home. You can also argue the Liberty series was good for the Sky, and it will get them focused moving forward. The Sky also won all 4 games against the Sun this season. With all that said, the Connecticut Sun are arguably the most talented team in the league, something I've said time and time again this year, and I have a hard time turning them down in the underdog role. The Sun are more than capable of winning this series. Give me the Sun and the free buckets.
