Elena Delle Donne is averaging 24.7 points and 9.3 rebounds while Cappie Pondexter is averaging 15.8 points and 3.9 rebounds. Courtney Vandersloot is dishing 5.5 assists and Jessica Breland is grabbing 5.6 rebounds. The Chicago Sky have lost back-to-back games for the third time this season and have allowed 80-plus points in five straight games. The Sky can score with anyone but have to be better defensively if they’re going to take that next step. The Sky have won won five of their last six games on their home court.
The Mystics are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. win and 5-12-1 ATS in their last 18 vs. Eastern Conference. The Sky are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record. The under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The Sky don't lose three straight very often, and they have the type of offense that can give Washington problems. I like the home team and the small chalk.
