The Chicago Sky have ben much better than last season like I said they would be, but I'm not sure I trust them against some of the leagues best just yet. The Connecticut Sun have been the most impressive team in the league up to this point and have had no problem winning on the road despite not shooting well. It's only a matter of time before the Sun start to hit shots at a much higher clip. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Sun.
