Elena Delle Donne is averaging 16.4 points and nine rebounds while Emma Meesseman is averaging 13.3 points and 2.3 assists. Kristi Toliver is the third double-digit scorer and Ariel Atkins is dishing 1.1 assists. The Washington Mystics are shooting 35.5 percent from beyond the arc and 86.8 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Mystics are allowing 32.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.2 rebounds per game. The Washington Mystics have won four of their last five road games.
The Chicago Sky look for another win after winning five of their last six games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 80.2 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 79.4 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Diamond DeShields is averaging 14.1 points and 5.6 rebounds while Courtney Vandersloot is averaging 11.8 points and 7.9 assists. Allie Quigley is the third double-digit scorer and Cheyenne Parker is grabbing 6.6 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 35.7 percent from beyond the arc and 84.2 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 31.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.9 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have won four of their last five home games.
The Mystics are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games. The Sky are 5-16 ATS in their last 21 games playing on 2 days rest, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Mystics are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Chicago and 9-0 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The over is 56-25-1 in Sky last 82 home games. The over is 4-1 in Mystics last 5 vs. Eastern Conference.
The Chicago Sky are much better than they've been in years past, but it's hard to make a case for them against the Mystics. Already losing to them this season by 18 points, the Mystics have won eight straight meetings against the Sky and are winning those games by an average of 21.6 points. It's just been beatdown after beatdown since Elena Delle Donne was traded from Chicago to Washington. History forces me to lay the reasonable chalk with the Mystics on the road here.
