The Washington Mystics and Chicago Sky meet Sunday in WNBA action at the Allstate Arena.
The Washington Mystics could use a nice road win after splitting their last six games. The Washington Mystics are averaging 83 points on 41.9 percent shooting and allowing 82.1 points on 42.7 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 20.4 points and 6.7 rebounds while Tayler Hill is averaging 15.9 points and 3.2 assists. Kristi Toliver is dishing 2.8 assists and Ivory Latta is grabbing 1.3 rebounds. The Washington Mystics are shooting 33.5 percent from beyond the arc and 87.3 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Mystics are allowing 36.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.5 rebounds per game. The Washington Mystics have lost three of their last five road games.
The Chicago Sky have a chance to win back-to-back games for the first time this season. The Chicago Sky are averaging 77.4 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 84.4 points on 41.9 percent shooting. Allie Quigley is averaging 15.8 points and 3.4 rebounds while Tamera Young is averaging 13.7 points and 2.5 assists. Cappie Pondexter is the third double-digit scorer and Stefanie Dolson is grabbing 5.7 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 32.8 percent from beyond the arc and 74.5 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 28.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.2 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky are 0-5 at home this season.
The Mystics are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference, 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-13 ATS in their last 18 Sunday games. The Sky are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Mystics are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Chicago, 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The Washington Mystics are a better team than what they've shown recently, while the Chicago Sky are just downright awful and have yet to win a home game. The Mystics already beat the Sky twice this season, and Chicago is allowing 92 points per game at home. I have to take Washington and the reasonable line as a fade from the Sky.
