The Chicago Sky look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 83.7 point on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 80.2 points on 42.8 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 24.2 points and 8.8 rebounds while Cappie Pondexter is averaging 15.2 points and four rebounds. Courtney Vandersloot is dishing 5.9 assists and Jessica Breland is grabbing 6.1 rebounds. The Chicago Sky have scored 64 or less points in three of their last five games and are 2-7 SU when scoring 75 or less points. The Sky are 10-3 SU on their home court and have won six of their last eight. This is the Sky’s first game in five days.
The Mystics are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Sky are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference. The under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
I'm not feeling great about the Sky right now, as they've been really inconsistent as of late and are no longer scoring at will. So, instead of playing the line, I'm siding with the over as this line is a tad bit too low.
