The Phoenix Mercury and Chicago Sky meet Tuesday in WNBA action at the Wintrust Arena.

The Phoenix Mercury look for another road victory to get a game above a .500 record. The Phoenix Mercury are averaging 76 points on 44.7 percent shooting and allowing 76.5 points on 41.5 percent shooting. DeWanna Bonner is averaging 23.3 points and 3.5 assists while Brittney Griner is averaging 16.5 points and 6.5 rebounds. Leilani Mitchell is the third double-digit scorer and Briann January is dishing three assists. The Phoenix Mercury are shooting 36.9 percent from beyond the arc and 83.3 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Mercury are allowing 44.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31 rebounds per game. The Phoenix Mercury have split their last six road games.

The Chicago Sky look to remain unbeaten at home while getting a game above a .500 record. The Chicago Sky are averaging 79.3 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 85.5 points on 43.2 percent shooting. Diamond DeShields is averaging 13 points and 4.5 rebounds while Cheyenne Parker is averaging 10.3 points and 5.8 rebounds. Allie Quigley is dishing 2.3 assists and Jantel Lavender is grabbing 5.5 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 31.2 percent from beyond the arc and 77.8 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 28 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.8 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have split their last eight home games.

The Mercury are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 road games, 7-18 ATS in their last 25 Tuesday games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Sky are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Tuesday games. The Mercury are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Chicago and the over is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings. The over is 4-1-1 in Sky last 6 overall. The over is 7-3-1 in Mercury last 11 road games.

The Chicago Sky still parent playing a lick of defense, and that's scary entering this contest where the Mercury have Bonner and Griner both playing at a high level. The Phoenix Mercury have started to put things together these last three games and are fresh off a road beatdown over the Indiana Fever whee everything was clicking offensively. Against a Sky team that's been arguably the worst defensive club up to this point, this is probably a repeat of that game. I'll lay the bucket with the Mercury. 

Pick:
Phoenix Mercury -3.5
