The Chicago Sky and Seattle Storm meet Friday in WNBA action at the Alaska Airlines Arena.
The Chicago Sky look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 79.6 points on 44.3 percent shooting and allowing 79.6 points on 41.5 percent shooting. Diamond DeShields is averaging 13.5 points and 5.9 rebounds while Allie Quigley is averaging 12.3 points and 2.7 assists. Courtney Vandersloot is the third double-digit scorer and Stefanie Dolson is grabbing five rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 85.6 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 30 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.6 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have split their last four road games.
The Seattle Storm look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The Seattle Storm are averaging 73.7 points on 41.7 percent shooting and allowing 71.8 points on 41.9 percent shooting. Natasha Howard is averaging 18.9 points and 9.2 rebounds while Jewell Loyd is averaging 15.8 points and 2.5 assists. Jordin Canada is dishing five assists and Alysha Clark is grabbing 5.8 rebounds. The Seattle Storm are shooting 30.2 percent from beyond the arc and 79.8 percent from the free throw line. The Seattle Storm are allowing 33.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.4 rebounds per game. The Seattle Storm have won all four home games this season.
The Sky are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Storm are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Friday games. The over is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings in Seattle and 12-3-1 in the last 16 meetings. The under is 16-5-2 in Storm last 23 overall. The under is 5-2 in Sky last 7 overall.
The Chicago Sky are finding ways to win games, but you have to be concerned with their style and the fact they allow so many points on average. It's hard to win games consistently in this league when simply trading points. The Seattle Storm have yet to lose at home this season where they're shooting 45.1 percent from the field and winning by an average of 10.5 points. The home team has also won four of the last five meetings between the Storm and Sky. I'll lay the bucket.
