Connecticut at Atlanta

2 units on Connecticut +6.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
Connecticut has a lot of home grown UConn players with five of them on their roster, and have the reputation of being a "home only" team. They have begun to mature, and that is no longer the case. This is a team that over their last six road games has lost just two of them, and the margins in the two losses were by 2 and 3 points respectively. Overall in the six games they have a scoring margin of +25 points, so this team has grown immensely from where they started the season on the road. The Dream has come back strong after a slow start to reach the .500 mark, but this one is inflated in a big way. They have not lost by more than 6 the entire season to any team that is not over .500. The Sun is now 5-1 ATS in their last six on the road, while Atlanta has covered just four of their last 16 as a favorite. Take Connecticut and the points here.
