The Chicago Sky and Las Vegas Aces meet Tuesday in WNBA action at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

The Chicago Sky look for a statement win to snap a three-game losing streak and get a game above a .500 record. The Chicago Sky are averaging 78.4 points on 43.6 percent shooting and allowing 80.8 points on 41.7 percent shooting. Diamond DeShields is averaging 14.8 points and 5.8 rebounds while Allie Quigley is averaging 12 points and 2.7 assists. Courtney Vandersloot is the third double-digit scorer and Cheyenne Parker is grabbing 6.4 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 83.6 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 31.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.2 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have lost four of their last six road games.

The Las Vegas Aces look to stay hot after winning six of their last nine games. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 82.1 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 77.9 points on 38.7 percent shooting. A'ja Wilson is averaging 17.2 points and 7.7 rebounds while Liz Cambage is averaging 14.8 points and 7.2 rebounds. Kayla McBride is the third double-digit scorer and Dearica Hamby is grabbing 6.8 rebounds. The Las Vegas  Aces are shooting 34.1 percent from beyond the arc and 78.3 percent from the free throw line. The Las Vegas Aces are allowing 31.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.5 rebounds per game. The Las Vegas Aces have won four of their last five home games.

The Sky are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss, 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Aces are 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Sky are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the over is 10-3 in the last 13 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Aces last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Sky last 5 road games.

The Las Vegas Aces are just 4-8 ATS this season and needed overtime to beat the Fever despite being 13-point favorites. The Chicago Sky haven't been good on the road this season and have defensive issues, but they can score the basketball and are only being outscored by an average of 4.8 points in their last five games. Eventually the Aces will become dominant right now, but I don't trust them with big chalk just yet based on the lack of covers.

Pick:
Chicago Sky +9
