The Chicago Sky have scored 95 or more points in three of their last four games, and Delle Donne has topped 40 points already twice this season.

The Indiana Fever look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Indiana Fever are averaging 76.8 points on 39.8 percent shooting and are allowing 82.5 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Marissa Coleman is averaging 13.6 points and four rebounds while Tamika Catchings is averaging 11.2 points and 8.6 rebounds. Natalie Achonwa is the third double-digit scorer and Shenise Johnson is grabbing 3.8 rebounds. The Indiana Fever are dead last in points allowed, as it doesn’t help they’re allowing teams to shoot 36.5 percent from beyond the arc. The good news for the Fever is they’ve scored at least 75 points in three straight games. However, the Fever are just 1-3 SU at home. Erlana Larkins and Shavonte Zellous are questionable with injuries.
The Sky are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Fever are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Sky are 5-13 ATS in the last 18 meetings in Indiana and 10-24 ATS in the last 34 meetings overall.
The Chicago Sky aren't slowing down at all offensively and Delle Donne is by far the early frontrunner for the MVP award. With the Fever's lack of defense, the Sky could top 100 points in this game. Take Chicago on the road.
