The Chicago Sky look for a win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 84.6 points on 45.4 percent shooting and are allowing 76.9 points on 43.9 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 24.6 points and 9.2 rebounds while Cappie Pondexter is averaging 15.6 points and four rebounds. Courtney Vandersloot is dishing 5.7 assists and Jessica Breland is grabbing 5.7 rebounds. The Chicago Sky have topped 80 points in seven of their last 11 games and are shooting 30.7 percent from downtown. The Sky are 11-4 SU when scoring at least 75 points this season. The Sky are 8-2 SU on their home court and have won six of their last seven.
The Fever are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Sky are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Fever are 11-4 ATS in the last 15 meetings in Chicago and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings overall.
The Sky have beaten the Fever three times this season and have controlled all three matches rather easily. However, the Sky haven't been great ATS as of late, and the Fever are probably playing their best ball of the season. I'll take my chances with the points this time.
