The Chicago Sky need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 77.5 points on 43.3 percent shooting and allowing 79.1 points on 41.6 percent shooting. Diamond DeShields is averaging 13.9 points and 5.9 rebounds while Allie Quigley is averaging 12.9 points and 2.8 assists.

The Liberty are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 3 or more days rest, 2-8 ATS in their last 10 vs. Eastern Conference and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Sky are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Liberty are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Chicago. The over is 56-27-1 in Sky last 84 home games. The under is 4-1 in Liberty last 5 overall.
The Chicago Sky are coming off some tough losses during this recent stretch, but they're still solid at home where they hold teams under 40 percent shooting and win by an average of 4.1 points. However, the New York Liberty have turned their season around as of late and actually have had some of their best results on the road this season. These games are also usually very high scoring and competitive. I'll take a shot with the free bucket.
