The Chicago Sky and Connecticut Sun meet Sunday in WNBA action at the Mohegan Sun Arena.

The Chicago Sky look for another victory after splitting their last eight games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 82.5 points on 44.7 percent shooting and allowing 89.7 points on 46.5 percent shooting. Allie Quigley is averaging 16.2 points and 2.6 assists while Diamond DeShields is averaging 13.4 points and 4.9 rebounds. Courtney Vandersloot is the third double-digit scorer and Stefanie Dolson is grabbing 4.5 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 79.7 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 35.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.7 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have lost five of their last seven road games.

The Connecticut Sun look to stay hot after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 87.2 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 82 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Chiney Ogwumike is averaging 14.5 points and 7.2 rebounds while Courtney Williams is averaging 12.3 points and 3.3 assists. Jasmine Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Jonquel Jones is dishing 1.5 assists. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 36.5 percent from beyond the arc and 74.1 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.8 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have won three straight home games.

The Sky are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 Sunday games. The Sun are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.

The Chicago Sky just beat the Connecticut Sun by 11 points on Friday as 10-point underdogs, so I'm not sure I want to lay even more chalk with this squad just because they're at home. Chicago has won two of the last three meetings against Connecticut and has played better basketball as of late overall where they're being outscored by just two points in their last five games. This is a ton of points to lay, especially in an early game. Give me the Chicago Sky and the points.

Pick:
Chicago Sky +13.5
