The Phoenix Mercury look to keep rolling after winning five of their last seven games. The Phoenix Mercury are averaging 76.5 points on 43.1 percent shooting and are allowing 73.1 points on 40.4 percent shooting. Brittney Griner is averaging 17.4 points and 7.8 rebounds while DeWanna Bonner is averaging 16.9 points and 6.1 rebounds. Candice Dupree is the third double-digit scorer and Leilani Mitchell is dishing 2.9 assists. The Phoenix Mercury have scored 80 or more point in five of their last eight games and are shooting 35.7 percent from deep. The Mercury are 8-1 SU when scoring 75 or more points. The Mercury are 6-2 SU on their home court this season.
The Sky are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The Mercury are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 Tuesday games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Sky are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
Phoenix has beaten Chicago in five straight meetings and many of those matches haven't even been close. I love the Sky's ability to score, but they're defensively challeneged which isn't good when facing the Mercury on the road. With reasonable chalk, I like the home team here.
