The Chicago Sky look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 85.9 points on 46.6 percent shooting and are allowing 81.1 points on 42.4 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 25.8 points and 9.8 rebounds while Cappie Pondexter is averaging 17.8 points and 2.8 assists. Courtney Vandersloot is the third double-digit scorer and Allie Quigley is dishing 1.9 assists. The Chicago Sky have scored 81 or more points in six of their last eight games and are shooting 32.5 percent from deep. The Sky have combined for 186 points in their last two games and are 7-2 SU when scoring 80 or more points. The Sky are 4-1 SU on their home court this season.
The Mystics are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS loss and 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The Sky are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games following a ATS win. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
I trust the Sky far more than the Mystics, especially at home where they've continued to put up points by the truckload. Not sure Washington can keep up in this spot.
