Free WNBA Pick: Connecticut Sun +1

Washington played inspired basketball as the players saw how hard Elene Delle Donne played despite the herniated disc in her back. While Delle Donne will once against suit up and play on Tuesday, do not expect the same results. Connecticut will come out strong at home and look to tie the series and send it back for a final Game 5 in Washington. The Sun will go inside and force Delle Donne to play defense with limited mobility. Final Score Prediction, Connecticut Sun wins and covers ATS 88-82
