Allie Quigley is averaging 16 points and 2.6 assists while Diamond DeShields is averaging 13.8 points and 4.8 rebounds. Courtney Vandersloot is the third double-digit scorer and Stefanie Dolson is grabbing 4.8 rebounds.

The Chicago Sky are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have lost eight of their last 10 road games.
The Dallas Wings look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last six games. The Dallas Wings are averaging 87.9 points on 45 percent shooting and allowing 83.3 points on 42.9 percent shooting. Elizabeth Cambage is averaging 22.1 points and 9.4 rebounds while Skylar Diggins-Smith is averaging 18.1 points and 6.3 assists.

The Sky are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Wings are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference and 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Sky are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Dallas and the over is 12-3-1 in the last 16 meetings.
The Dallas Wings cooled off before the break to the point you're not comfortable enough to lay big chalk with them, especially with the Sky doing just enough recently to show that there may be signs of life. So, instead of laying the big number, I'm going to back the over in this spot. The over has been an extremely popualr trend when these clubs meet, and the Sky are allowing 97.4 points in their last five games. The Wings are averaging 90.4 points in their last five games and 89.3 points at home this season. It's a monster total, but the points scored and allowed by these sides has been consistent. Expect fireworks.
