The Chicago Sky are allowing 32.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.4 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have lost three straight road games.
The Seattle Storm also need a victory here after losing two of their last three games. The Seattle Storm are averaging 88.1 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 80.2 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Breanna Stewart is averaging 20.4 points and 7.6 rebounds while Jewell Loyd is averaging 19.4 points and 3.2 assists.

The Seattle Storm are allowing 31.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.8 rebounds per game. The Seattle Storm have won three of their last four home games.
The Sky are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 vs. Western Conference, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games. The Storm are 5-16-1 ATS in their last 22 vs. Eastern Conference, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Tuesday games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Sky are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Seattle and the over is 10-2 in the last 12 meetings.
The Chicago Sky are being outscored by 14.4 points and allowing 49.6 percent shooting in their last five games. That's not good when you consider the Seattle Storm are an offensive powerhouse that is second in the league in points per game and three point percentage. I don't love laying double-digit chalk, but I have no choice here. I'm not trying to back the Sky given their recent results.
