The Chicago Sky and Connecticut Sun meet Friday in WNBA action at the Mohegan Sun Arena.
The Chicago Sky look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 83.8 points on 44.3 percent shooting and allowing 82.1 points on 41.7 percent shooting. Diamond DeShields is averaging 15.8 points and 5.6 rebounds while Allie Quigley is averaging 14 points and 2.6 assists. Courtney Vandersloot is the third double-digit scorer and Jantel Lavender is grabbing 6.9 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 33.8 percent from beyond the arc and 81.8 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 32.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.5 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have won five of their last eight road games.
The Connecticut Sun look to stay hot after winning seven of their last eight games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 80.2 points on 42.6 percent shooting and allowing 76.2 points on 43.1 percent shooting. Jonquel Jones is averaging 14.6 points and 9.8 rebounds while Courtney Williams is averaging 13 points and 3.6 assists. Alyssa Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Jasmine Thomas is dishing 5.3 assists. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 70.1 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 29.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.7 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have won nine straight home games.
The Sky are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games, 7-2 ATS in their last 9 road games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Sun are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win, 5-14-1 ATS in their last 20 Friday games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Sky are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Connecticut and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Sun last 5 overall. The over is 19-6-1 in Sky last 26 overall.
The Sky have proven they're capable of hanging with any team in the league when they're making shots, but fading the Connecticut Sun at home isn't an option as long as the line is reasonable. The Connecticut Sun are 10-6 ATS at home this season and are winning those games by an average of 10.9 points while shooting 44.9 percent from the field. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Sun.
