Draftkings picks and predictions for this tomorrow's Fever vs. Sky matchup.

Indiana Fever vs. Chicago Sky
June 23, 2024 4:00 pm EDT

The WNBA presents a matchup between the Chicago Sky and the Indiana Fever. Let’s take a look at this game from a Draftkings perspective.

Before we dive into the Chicago Sky vs. Indiana Fever game let’s review the rules for the Draftkings single game showdown contest.

Draftkings Single Game Showdown Contest Rules

You have $50,000 to utilize on five players from either team. However, one of those players will be designated as your team captain. The captain accumulates 1.5 times the standard fantasy points. Additionally, the captain is 1.5 times the standard cost of the flex position.

The remaining four players in your lineup will receive the standard fantasy points. Having stated that, it is highly important for you to identify the correct player for your captain position if you hope to win a large field DFS GPP (guaranteed prize pool) showdown contest.

If you have additional questions regarding the rules for the single game showdown contest, I recommend that you check out the Draftkings website for more details.

*I recommend that all readers review the starting lineups for both teams prior to setting your DFS lineup for this one game slate

Here are my Draftkings picks for this afternoon’s Chicago Sky vs. Indiana Pacers matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Aliyah Boston. Forward, Indiana Fever $9,400

Indiana Fever forward Aliyah Boston has certainly been the leader in the paint that the Fever have needed to win games this season. Let’s take a look at Boston’s recent game data to shed light on my previous statement.

In 15 games played for the Indiana Fever in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Indiana Fever forward Aliyah Boston has averaged an impressive 12.7 points, 8.1 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.8 steals, and 1.3 blocks a game.

More recently, in the Indiana Fever’s 91-79 to the Atlanta Dream three days ago, Indiana Fever forward Aliyah Boston posted some quality fantasy numbers in the Fever’s win over the dream. Boston accumulated 11 points, 12 rebounds, and 5 assists in the Seattle Stom’s defeat of the Indiana Fever earlier this week.

Additionally, I certainly like Aliyah Boston’s matchup this afternoon? Why? Indiana’s Aliyah Boston draws a Chicago Sky defense that has struggled to defend opposing players in the paint all season. Through 15 games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, the Chicago Sky are currently ranked an abysmal 11th in total points allowed in the paint a game (38.1), 12th in defensive rebound percentage (24), and 12th in total opponent second chance points allowed a game (14.1).

Flex Plays

Angel Reese, Forward, Chicago Sky $10,400

Chicago Sky rookie forward Angel Reese has wasted little time showing the world that she belongs in the WNBA. Having stated that, how is Reese playing from a statistical standpoint?

In the Chicago Sky’s six games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Chicago Sky forward Angel Reese is averaging 11.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.3 steals a game.

Caitlin Clark, Guard, Indiana Fever $10,000

How important has rookie guard Caitlin Clark been to the Indiana Fever this season? Let’s review Indiana guard Caitlin Clark’s statistical game data game to answer that question.

In the 15 games that Caitlin Clark has played for the Indiana Fever in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Clark has averaged 16.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1 block a game.

In summary, I expect Indiana guard Caitlin Clark to perform at a high level versus a vulnerable Chicago Sky defense tomorrow evening.

Additional players I like to play well this evening (Draftkings price noted): Dana Evans, Guard, (Chicago Sky) $6,400: NaLyssa Smith, Forward, (Indiana Fever) $8,200: Marina Mabrey, Guard (Chicago Sky) $8,400: Kelsey Mitchell, Guard (Indiana Fever) $7,200.
