The Line: Sky +1 -- Over/Under: 169
The Dallas Wings and Chicago Sky meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the Allstate Arena on Twitter.
The Dallas Wings could use a big road victory here to get back to a .500 record. The Dallas Wings are averaging 84.3 points on 41.2 percent shooting and allowing 86.6 points on 47.4 percent shooting. Skylar Diggins-Smith is averaging 17.7 points and 5.8 assists while Glory Johnson is averaging 13.9 points and 8.7 rebounds. Allisha Gray is the third double-digit scorer and Karima Christmas-Kelly is grabbing four rebounds. The Dallas Wings are shooting 30.5 percent from beyond the arc and 82.1 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 34.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.8 rebounds per game. The Dallas Wings have lost five of their last seven road games.
The Chicago Sky look for a victory here to win back-to-back games for the first time this season. The Chicago Sky are averaging 78.1 points on 44.4 percent shooting and allowing 84.8 points on 42.9 percent shooting. Allie Quigley is averaging 16 points and three assists while Stefanie Dolson is averaging 12.9 points and 5.3 rebounds. Cappie Pondexter is the third double-digit scorer and Tamera Young is dishing 2.6 assists. The Chicago Sky are shooting 33.9 percent from beyond the arc and 75.5 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 31.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.2 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have lost seven of their last eight home games.
The Wings are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss. The Sky are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest, 1-8 ATS in their last 9 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference. The Wings are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Chicago, 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Five of the Wings losses this season have come on the road and the Sky have won the last four meetings against Dallas. The Sky are also coming off a monster victory over the Minnesota Lynx, and that could be the confidence booster this team needed. In a toss-up game, I'm siding with the Sky and the free point at home.
