Storm vs Sun Game Info

2022 WNBA Regular Season Game
Seattle Storm (9-5, 3-2 Away) vs. Connecticut Sun (11-4, 6-2 Home)
Date: Friday, June 17, 2021
Time: 7:00 p.m. ET
Venue: Mohegan Sun Arena — Uncasville, CT

Two of the WNBA's very best meet in this clash on Friday. Seattle is on a roll after some early struggles, winning four straight games. Last time out, the Storm hung on for an 81-79 victory on the road against the Minnesota Lynx. Star forward Breanna Stewart carried the load, putting up 29 points with Sue Bird sidelined due to a non-COVID illness.

The Sun, meanwhile, are dominating once again to begin the year. They've won five of their last six games, notching a 105-92 victory over the Atlanta Dream on Wednesday.

Storm vs Sun Odds & Spread

All WNBA betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
Moneyline: SEA: (+265) | CONN: (-350)
Spread: SEA: +7.5 (-110) | CONN: -7.5 (-110)
Total: 161.5 — Over: (-105) | Under: (-115)
Odds to Win WNBA Championship: SEA: (+600) | CONN: (+370)

It's no surprise to see the Sun heavily favored in this one, even despite the Storm's win streak. Connecticut is an impressive 6-2 at home this season, while Seattle hasn't gotten much road experience in 2022, going 3-2 in those contests so far. Both teams have put up at least 81 points in each of their last three games, so expect some fireworks between these squads on Friday.

Storm vs Sun Prediction & Pick

All NBA win probability predictions and picks are according to FiveThirtyEight.
Prediction: Sun win (74.0%)

FiveThirtyEight is strongly leaning toward Connecticut in this one. It's hard not to, considering the Sun are averaging a whopping 88.3 points per game, the second-highest mark in the league behind the Las Vegas Aces (90.9 PPG).

Seattle is still finding its footing offensively, checking in at No. 9 in the league with 78.8 PPG. The status of Bird, who's day-to-day, will also play a big factor in shaping this contest.

Final Score Prediction: Storm: 83 | Sun: 90
