Nneka Ogwumike is averaging 18.7 points and 6.8 rebounds while Chelsea Gray is averaging 16.2 points and 6.2 assists.

The Sky are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. Western Conference and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games. The Sparks are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 20-7 ATS in their last 27 games overall. The Sky are 3-9 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
The Chicago Sky haven't played bad enough to be this big of an underdog, especially when they're shooting 50 percent from the field on the road. The Los Angeles Sparks are actually being outscored at home so far this season and have been torched defensively overall this season to the point they're outscoring teams by just 0.2 points on the season despite a 4-2 record. The Sparks have been a covering machine dating back to last season, but I'm not laying double-digit chalk. Give me the Sky and the points.
