Skylar Diggins-Smith is averaging 17.9 points and 5.8 assists while Glory Johnson is averaging 13.8 points and 8.5 rebounds.

The Sky are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The Wings are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss and 7-20 ATS in their last 27 vs. Eastern Conference. The Sky are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

The Sky have owned the Wings over the years and have actually played their best ball of the season on the road. However, the Wings are playing some of their best ball of the season right now and have to keep winning if they hope to position themselves nicely for the playoffs. This line is a bit steep given the history, but Dallas can get the job done here.

Pick:
Dallas Wings -6
