The Chicago Sky need a victory here after losing seven of their last eight games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 80.7 points on 43.5 percent shooting and allowing 89.6 points on 47 percent shooting. Allie Quigley is averaging 16.1 points and 2.6 assists while Diamond DeShields is averaging 13.4 points and 4.9 rebounds.

The Sky are 9-21 ATS in their last 30 home games, 5-12 ATS in their last 17 vs. Western Conference and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings in Chicago and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
It's always risky to lay chalk with a team on the end of a back to back, but it's tough to argue with the Dallas Wings, who have been beating teams into the ground over the last two weeks. The Wings came into last night outscoring teams by 12.8 points in their last five games and just dropped 90 points in their win over the Mystics. The Chicago Sky are being outscored by 6.8 points at home this season and 13.4 points in their last five games. The Sky have been fade material all season, especially at home where they don't cover numbers at all. I'll take the Sky and the somewhat reasonable chalk.
