The Connecticut Sun and Chicago Sky meet Wednesday in game 2 of the WNBA Playoffs Second Round at the Wintrust Arena. The Connecticut Sun look for another upset to take a 2-0 series lead. The Chicago Sky need a win here to even up the series at 1-1.

The Sun are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 road games and 14-3 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Sky are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest. The over is 5-2 in Sun last 7 overall. The under is 5-1 in Sky last 6 overall. The Sun are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Chicago and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

We saw what the Chicago Sky did to the Sun after they lost the opener in that series, and they should be given the benefit of the doubt of a bounce back here. The Sky were the best team in the league this season, and they're the defending champs. The line is accurate. With that said, the Connecticut Sun are probably the most talented team in the league when healthy, something I've said countless times this season. The Sun and this run doesn't surprise me, and a possible win here shouldn't surprise you. I always see value with the Sun and free points. That's just how talented the Sun are. Give me the road dog again.
