The Connecticut Sun host the Los Angeles Sparks on Tuesday, as we offer our best Sparks vs. Sun prediction and expert picks based on the best WNBA odds.

Only one team has beaten the Connecticut Sun (12-1) in the first month of the WNBA season. The Los Angeles Sparks (4-10) will try to become the second when they head to Mohegan Sun Arena for Tuesday's matchup, which tips off at 7 p.m. ET on NBA TV.

The Sun are 12.5-point favorites to beat the Sparks across all of our best sportsbooks. Connecticut is also listed as one of the title favorites in the latest WNBA championship odds after its scorching start to the season.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles is looking to halt a three-game skid as part of a challenging seven-game road trip for one of the WNBA's youngest teams.

Sparks vs. Sun predictions for Tuesday

Sun -12.5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

While the Aces and Liberty are getting shorter WNBA odds in the title market, the Sun have been arguably the WNBA's best team with the league's leading record (12-1), net rating (+13.2), and average scoring margin (+10.3).

It all starts on the defensive end, where Connecticut ranks first in efficiency (90.7) behind reigning two-time DPOY runner-up Alyssa Thomas and breakout star DiJonai Carrington. The Sun have done an exceptional job limiting transition points and forcing teams to reckon with their stellar half-court defense.

That's an issue for the Sparks, who rank 11th in offensive rating (96.3) and struggle to generate half-court offense if Dearica Hamby isn't cooking. Four of Connecticut's five wins in June have come by at least 15 points, and I fully expect the Sun to stay hot at home.

Dearica Hamby Under 17.5 points ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Hamby has been sensational during her second season with the Sparks, ranking seventh in the WNBA in points (19) and third in rebounds (11.1) on a per-game basis. She's cooled off lately though, and Hamby faces a tough matchup against Connecticut.

The two-time All-Star opened the season with an eight-game run averaging 20.9 points on 54.8% shooting and a blistering 53.3% from deep. She's tallied just 16.5 points per game in six starts since on 47.6% shooting, and Hamby made more than one 3-pointer just once during that stretch.

Her 10-point effort on Sunday marked Hamby's third straight game falling below this prop total. Now she faces the WNBA's best defense, and one of the league's best perimeter defenders in Carrington, who has been shutting down star scorers regularly.

With this prop dealing as short as -130 at FanDuel, these +100 odds from bet365 make this a strong value with $10 in profit for every $10 wagered.

Best odds: +100 via bet365
