The New York Liberty and Chicago Sky meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the Wintrust Arena.

The New York Liberty look for a win after losing six of their last seven games. The New York Liberty are averaging 76.8 points on 40.7 percent shooting and allowing 83.2 points on 43 percent shooting. Tina Charles is averaging 16.9 points and 7.6 rebounds while Kia Nurse is averaging 15.1 points and two assists. Asia Durr is dishing 1.8 assists and Amanda Zahui B. is grabbing 6.7 rebounds. The New York Liberty are shooting 31.8 percent from beyond the arc and 79.5 percent from the free throw line. The New York Liberty are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.7 rebounds per game. The New York Liberty have lost their last four road games.

The Chicago Sky look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 80.8 points on 44.5 percent shooting and allowing 80 points on 40.7 percent shooting. Diamond DeShields is averaging 14.8 points and six rebounds while Allie Quigley is averaging 13.4 points and 2.8 assists. Courtney Vandersloot is the third double-digit scorer and Stefanie Dolson is grabbing 5.9 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 36.2 percent from beyond the arc and 81.8 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 31.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.3 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have won five of their last seven home games.

The Liberty are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss, 3-10 ATS in their last 13 vs. Eastern Conference and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Sky are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Liberty are 8-17-1 ATS in the last 26 meetings and the over is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings. The over is 4-1-1 in Sky last 6 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Liberty last 5 road games.

The New York Liberty ae losing their last five games by an average of 9.8 points and are shooting 39 percent from the field. On the road this season, the Liberty lose by an average of 7.9 points. The Chicago Sky beat the Liberty by 16 points last month and have been red hot offensively as of late, averaging 85 points in their last five games while shooting 46.3 percent from the field. These teams are heading in complete opposite directions, so the Sky in a comfortable victory is the only option for me.

Pick:
Chicago Sky -7.5
