3 units on Seattle +4.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Connecticut Sun have a lot of Connecticut flavor on their roster with five former UConn Huskies, and it has helped them establish a pretty potent home court advantage. They will, however, be facing a team in the Seattle Storm that is 32-8 in their last 40 WNBA regular season games. And in the process they have won more frequently than any other team in the WNBA on the road at 12-7. They will also bring with them the memory of a 20-point loss at Connecticut late last season. That will ensure their focus and resolve here for this one. The Sun may be sticking it to their Eastern Conference rivals, but the West is 2-0 ATS here, and the best is yet to come. Mark this one for Seattle.
