The WNBA schedule quirk will see these clubs match up for the third time in less than two weeks. That certainly takes a lot of the guess work out of the defensive end as these teams have certainly seen enough out of each other to know what is coming, with little time to make any significant changes. That should slow down the offenses, as well as the fact that these clubs rank No. 3 and No. 4 in fewest points allowed in the league. The Sun has always had a lot of Connecticut flavor on the team, and this year has five former UConn Huskies on the roster. That has helped them at home where they are 52-19 in their last 71 games, but the road has been a mess at just 18-37 over their last 55. Sky lost by 15 points at Connecticut, which is fresh in their minds, and will be ready to extract revenge here. The Sun are 64-42 UNDER after a home win and 38-17 UNDER on the road after scoring 8-+ points. I like Chicago and the UNDER in this one.
