Atlanta Dream vs Connecticut Sun: WNBA Predictions and Picks For Today's Key Clash

 

As the WNBA season heats up, we are set to witness a thrilling match as the Atlanta Dream (12-8) lock horns with the Connecticut Sun (15-5). Both teams have been quite impressive, but our eyes are on the Dream, aiming for their fourth straight road win. Here at KingPin.pro, we use cutting-edge analytics for our WNBA predictions, and our experts picks are all in agreement.

 

Examining The Sun: Offense, Defense, and Injuries

The Connecticut Sun have been shining brightly in the Eastern Conference, boasting a commanding 8-3 record. Their offense, anchored by DeWanna Bonner's stellar shooting from the downtown, ranking sixth in the WNBA with an average of 7.1 made 3-pointers per game. Bonner has been nothing short of sensational, with an average of 19.3 points in the last 10 games.

Defensively, the Sun are a formidable opponent, yielding an average of just 80.5 points per game over their last 10 matches. Their defense is further bolstered by an impressive 8.4 steals and 3.6 blocks per game.

However, the Sun's shining performance has been slightly eclipsed by the season-ending Achilles injury to Brionna Jones. Jones has been a key player for the Sun, leading the team with 28 points in their last encounter against the Dream. This injury will be a significant blow to the Sun's overall performance.

 

The Atlanta Dream: Offense, Defense, and Injuries

Shifting our focus to the Atlanta Dream, they have an admirable 7-5 record against Eastern Conference opponents. The Dream's offense is robust, averaging 87.2 points in their last ten games. The dynamic duo of Allisha Gray and Rhyne Howard, with averages of 17.9 and 20.4 points, respectively, have been lighting up the scoreboard.

Defensively, the Dream has shown resilience, holding their opponents to 84.9 points on average over the past 10 games. Their defense has been active, racking up 7.5 steals and 5.3 blocks per game.

Like the Sun, the Dream are not without injury concerns. Aari McDonald, a crucial part of their team, is out due to a torn labrum. However, this setback has been mitigated by the team's depth and overall strong performance.

 

Prediction

While the Sun's stellar record cannot be ignored, the Dream's recent form, coupled with the Sun's significant loss of Brionna Jones, indicates a promising performance from the Dream. The Atlanta Dream have been consistent in their scoring, and their robust defense could limit the Sun's ability to pile up the points.

Furthermore, the Dream's depth, particularly with players like Gray and Howard, will be instrumental in filling the void left by McDonald's injury. Given the Dream's offensive prowess and commendable defense, there is a strong chance they will cover the +6 points spread, even if the Sun are winning by an average of 5 points this season.
