Allie Quigley is averaging 15.8 points and 2.3 assists while Diamond DeShields is averaging 12.3 points and 4.7 rebounds.

The Dream are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 road games, 5-15 ATS in their last 20 vs. Eastern Conference and 8-18 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Sky are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games, 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Dream are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the over is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings.
Really early games usually favor the home team and the Dream playing without Tiffany Hayes doesn't help. But I'm still not taking the Chicago Sky in any spot, as this team gets blown out on the regular and playing at home hasn't improved those numbers much. This is a game I wouldn't bet, but if forced to pick, I'm backing the Dream. Banged up or not, the Sky are downright awful...
