Our wnba predictions are based on extensive research and analysis and aim to provide you with the most reliable wnba picks for today.
Connecticut Sun – A Rising Power
The Sun have been on a roll, averaging 87.7 points in the last 10 games with a shooting percentage of 47.1%. Although they have suffered a blow with Brionna Jones out for the season, other players like Alyssa Thomas have stepped up. Thomas leads the team in defensive rebounds, averaging 8.3 per game, while contributing significantly to the offense.
The Sun's defense has been admirable, ranking seventh in the WNBA with 26.9 defensive rebounds per game. Their ability to contain opponents has been significant in their 8-2 record in the last 10 games, where they have restricted opponents to an average of 78.7 points per game.
The Sun have been dealt a massive blow with the loss of Brionna Jones, who is out for the season due to an Achilles injury. However, other players have filled the gap admirably, with the team still maintaining a strong record.
New York Liberty – A Potent Force
New York Liberty have shown an impressive offense, averaging 90.1 points in the last 10 games with a 46.1% shooting percentage. Sabrina Ionescu's recent 31-point game against the Washington Mystics showcases the team's offensive depth and ability to rack up points.
The Liberty have been equally impressive on defense, holding opponents to 41.4% shooting and giving up only 79.9 points per game. Their defensive prowess, combined with their offensive capabilities, makes them a formidable opponent.
The Liberty are fortunate enough to not have any listed injuries, which can be a significant advantage for them in this game, given the Sun’s loss of Brionna Jones.
After evaluating the offense, defense, and injuries of both teams, it is predicted that the Connecticut Sun will cover the +5.5 points spread. The Sun's home advantage, combined with their defensive rebounding and recent form, makes them a slight favorite despite the loss of Brionna Jones. The Liberty have been impressive, but the Sun’s ability to contain opponents and capitalize on rebounds could be a game-changer.
