The question when betting on Sun vs Mystics tonight is how much Connecticut will win by. Washington has been the league’s worst team so far, with the least-effective offense and the third-worst defense.

The Mystics have only gone over this line once in their last seven games, which was when they scored 80 points against the Phoenix Mercury. Connecticut is dead-last in pace and has the league’s best defensive rating. Washington getting to 80 or more points seems far-fetched.

While it might appear contradictory to take Ariel Atkins’ points over, we just think this line is way too low. Atkins has cleared this number in her last two and five of eight overall. With Shakira Austin sidelined, her usage naturally increases.

The Sun only going 3-5 against the spread pushes us to the moneyline. Washington might be 0-8 straight-up, but they have only failed to cover in three of their games to date.

Connecticut Sun News, Injury Report, Schedule: Deep Roster

Connecticut is exceeding its expected win-loss record by a couple of wins. This can partly be attributed to a number of narrow victories. It’s a sign of the league’s best defense getting it done when it matters in the fourth quarter. While their offense has not been the most potent, they should have no issue generating good looks against this Mystics team.

All five Sun starters are averaging double-digit points per game. DeWanna Bonner has been leading the team in scoring, but they are a diverse offensive unit capable of getting scoring bursts from across the roster.

Washington Mystics News, Injury Report, Schedule: Missing Austin

Shakira Austin and Brittney Sykes are both ruled out for Tuesday’s game. Austin is a big loss – Washington is 10.7 points per 100 possessions better with Austin on the floor, and only Ariel Atkins has been scoring more points per game this season.

The 0-8 record might be a bit harsh on Washington. They don’t have the worst net rating in the Association, and their expected record is 2-6. Still, they are focusing on player development in 2024 and are utterly overmatched against the Sun.

Sun vs Mystics H2H: Connecticut Hold Sizeable Advantage

The Connecticut Sun have a 57-35 advantage over the Washington Mystics in the all-time regular-season series. Connecticut has not lost a regular-season series to the Mystics since 2016 and has won six consecutive regular-season games, including a seven-point win last month.

Dominated in this matchup over the last few years, it’s no surprise Washington is a sizeable underdog in the latest WNBA betting markets.
