Minnesota at Connecticut

1 unit on Game Total UNDER 156 -110 (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: LOSS
A season of high expectations never got off the ground for the Connecticut Sun. They have a 7-17 record heading into this game - worse than the lowly Tulsa Shock. This is a team that stands third from the bottom averaging just 71.2 points per game, but are in the middle of the pack defensively allowing 76 ppg. Those numbers have led the Sun to a 15-6 UNDER mark over their last 21 games. Minnesota is strong on the offensive end, but have had problems of late. They opened the season failing to score 80 points in just three of their first 20 games, but have matched that total in their last five games, failing to reach the 80 point mark three times. This will not be considered a very challenging game, and I expect that the corrections won't take place here. The Sun have not topped the total in each of their last six on three days of rest or more. The Lynx stand at 5-2 to the UNDER in their last seven when following an ATS loss. This one comes in UNDER the total.
