Connecticut at Phoenix

3 units on Connecticut +2 (-115) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
At 9-2 the Connecticut Sun have gotten off to a fast start. This looks easy and the line looks too easy. There is a reason. The Sun has had two grueling road games back-to-back, and this will be their fourth on the road in a row in nine days, changing time zones along the way. This is a long-dominated home-team league, and in the right spot there is value, as home teams have posted a 42-27 mark thus far. Behind Cappy Pondexter (25.5 ppg) and Diana Turasi (23.5ppg), Phoenix is always a threat on any given night especially at home. They have played a tough schedule so far facing LA twice, Seattle twice as well as Detroit, so their record may not be reflective of what this team can do, and this is a good spot to go against a road-weary Connecticut team.
