The Chicago Sky look to keep rolling after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 84.5 points on 45.8 percent shooting and are allowing 79.7 points on 41.9 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 24 points and 9.7 rebounds while Cappie Pondexter is averaging 16.7 points and 2.5 assists.

The Chicago Sky have topped 80 points in seven of their last 10 games and are 9-2 SU when scoring 75 or more points. The Sky are 5-1 SU on their home court this season, which includes three straight wins.
The Stars are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-3-2 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The Sky are 8-20 ATS in their last 28 vs. Western Conference and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Stars are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Chicago and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings overall.
The meeting back in June went into overtime and before that, the Stars won four of the last five meetings. While I love the Sky's offensive firepower, this is simply too many points to give up. Take the Stars.
