Connecticut Sun in WNBA Bounce-Back Spot vs. Atlanta Dream



Jun 21, 2018, 05:00 PM EDT

No team started the 2018 WNBA season hotter than the Connecticut Sun, who raced out to a 5-0 record in dominant fashion. Since then, the Sun have dropped four of their last six games, leaving us wondering which version we’ll see as the season progresses.


As always, context is needed in order to paint the full picture. The Sun’s current three-game losing streak has played out as follows:

6/13: Connecticut battled back from a 28-point halftime deficit to lose a heart-breaker at home to the Mystics.

6/15: Playing without its best defensive player, Alyssa Thomas, Connecticut lost a game in Seattle to the Storm, who are now 8-4.

6/16: On the second half of a road back-to-back set, with leading scorer Chiney Ogwumike joining Thomas on the inactive list, the Sun dropped a game to the Mercury, who are now 10-3.

Does this sound like a team that deserves a little slack? Let’s take a look at a profitable BetLabs trend that supports backing the Sun in Friday’s matchup against the Atlanta Dream (7 p.m. ET).
