The Chicago Sky and New York Liberty meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the Westchester County Center.

The Chicago Sky look for another win to build on their three-game winning streak. The Chicago Sky are averaging 78.2 points on 43.4 percent shooting and allowing 80.2 points on 41 percent shooting. Diamond DeShields is averaging 14 points and 4.7 rebounds while Allie Quigley is averaging 10.8 points and 2.3 assists. Stefanie Dolson is the third double-digit scorer and Courtney Vandersloot is dishing 8.3 assists. The Chicago Sky are shooting 36.7 percent from beyond the arc and 83.1 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 27.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.8 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have lost two of their last three road games.

The New York Liberty also look for a win after winning three of their last four games. The New York Liberty are averaging 80.1 points on 40.6 percent shooting and allowing 85.5 points on 43.4 percent shooting. Tina Charles is averaging 17.9 points and 8.5 rebounds while Kia Nurse is averaging 15.4 points and 2.4 assists. Asia Durr is the third double-digit scorer and Amanda Zahui B. is grabbing 7.5 rebounds. The New York Liberty are shooting 28.8 percent from beyond the arc and 82.3 percent from the free throw line. The New York Liberty are allowing 34.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.6 rebounds per game. The New York Liberty have split their last four home games.

The Sky are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win, 3-10 ATS in their last 13 Wednesday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Liberty are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 3 or more days rest, 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 home games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Sky are 11-3 ATS in the last 14 meetings in New York and the under is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in New York. The over is 4-0 in Liberty last 4 vs. Eastern Conference. The under is 4-1-1 in Sky last 6 overall.

The Chicago Sky are riding a three-game winning streak, but they've lost two of their last three on the road and are losing road games this season by an average of 10 points while allowing 85.3 points. The New York Liberty are finally starting to put things together these past few games and are really tough defensively at home where they allowing 39.2 percent shooting. Defense will be the difference in this contest and I trust the Liberty on their home court a lot more. I'll lay the bucket. 

Pick:
New York Liberty -2
