The Sky are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Wings are 6-14-1 ATS in their last 21 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Sky are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Dallas.
The Wings are too talented to continue losing like this and need to turn things around in order to have any chance of sneaking into the playoffs. The Sky aren't the best road team in the world and could have trouble in this one against a Wings club that can put the ball in the hoop.
