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

The Chicago Sky look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 81.7 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 80.6 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Diamond DeShields is averaging 14.8 points and 5.9 rebounds while Allie Quigley is averaging 13.8 points and 2.8 assists. Courtney Vandersloot is the third double-digit scorer and Jantel Lavender is grabbing 6.9 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 35.6 percent from beyond the arc and 82 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 32 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.1 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 11 of their last 15 games. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 80.3 points on 42.7 percent shooting and allowing 75.3 points on 38.7 percent shooting. A'ja Wilson is averaging 15.4 points and 6.6 rebounds while Liz Cambage is averaging 14.9 points and 7.9 rebounds. Kayla McBride is the third double-digit scorer and Dearica Hamby is grabbing seven rebounds. The Las Vegas  Aces are shooting 38.1 percent from beyond the arc and 77.3 percent from the free throw line. The Las Vegas Aces are allowing 33.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.6 rebounds per game. The Las Vegas Aces have won seven of their last eight home games.

The Sky are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Aces are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Sky are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the over is 11-3 in the last 14 meetings. The under is 5-0-1 in Aces last 6 overall. The over is 5-1-1 in Sky last 7 overall.

The Las Vegas Aces got whatever they wanted offensively when they played the Sky a little over a month ago, and they enter this contest winning their last five games by an average of 10.2 points. The Chicago Sky are winning games, but their style can lad to some ugly losses, and they lose on the road by an average of 4.2 points. The Aces are banged up, but they're playing some of their most consistent ball of the season and the winning margins are improving. I'll eat the reasonable chalk.

Pick:
Las Vegas Aces -6
