The Sky are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Stars are 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 3-8-2 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Sky are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
Laying this much chalk with a road team is something I don't do often, but the Stars aren't a good basketball team. It's just that simple. The Sky are loaded on the offensive end and should be able to run San Antonio out of the building if they show up. I'll take Chicago by double digits.
