The Chicago Sky look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 85.1 points on 45.8 percent shooting and are allowing 81.5 points on 42.2 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 26.9 points and 9.9 rebounds while Cappie Pondexter is averaging 16.9 points and 2.5 assists. Courtney Vandersloot is dishing five assists and Allie Quigley is grabbing 1.7 rebounds. The Chicago Sky have scored at least 77 points in six of their last seven games and are 7-2 SU when scoring at least 75 points this season. The Sky are 3-1 SU on their home court this season and will play their third game in July.
The Sun are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games and 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Sky are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a S.U. win and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference. The Sun are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Chicago and 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings overall.
I don't like the big chalk simply because the Sun have had 10 days rest. However, both squads are scoring points in boatloads right now, which makes the over the smart play here.
