The Indiana Fever and Chicago Sky meet Sunday in WNBA action at the Wintrust Arena.
The Indiana Fever could use a win after losing eight of their last nine games. The Indiana Fever are averaging 77.6 points on 42.4 percent shooting and allowing 79.6 points on 41.5 percent shooting. Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 13.6 points and 2.4 assists while Erica Wheeler is averaging 11.9 points and 2.8 rebounds. Candice Dupree is the third double-digit scorer and Natalie Achonwa is grabbing 5.4 rebounds. The Indiana Fever are shooting 33.6 percent from beyond the arc and 81.3 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Fever are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.6 rebounds per game. The Indiana Fever have lost four of their last six road games.
The Chicago Sky look for a win after winning four of their last five games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 79.9 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 79.8 points on 40.9 percent shooting. Diamond DeShields is averaging 15.3 points and 5.8 rebounds while Allie Quigley is averaging 12.8 points and 3.1 assists. Courtney Vandersloot is dishing 8.2 assists and Jantel Lavender is grabbing 6.7 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 82.5 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 30.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.3 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have won four of their last six home games.
The Fever are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Sunday games. The Sky are 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games. The Fever are 19-7-1 ATS in the last 27 meetings in Chicago and the over is 15-5 in the last 20 meetings in Chicago. The over is 5-2-1 in Sky last 8 overall. The under is 5-2 in Fever last 7 games playing on 1 days rest.
The road team has won each of the last eight meetings between the Fever and Sky, but Indiana has shown time and time again just how sloppy this team can be. The Chicago Sky are on a hot streak again where they're averaging 83 points in their last five games and winning those games by an average of 7.6 points. If the Sky continue to shoot like this, the Fever have little chance of making this contest competitive. I'll lay the buckets with the Sky, mainly because I lack confidence in the Fever, especially on the road.
