The Chicago Sky also need a win here after splitting their last 12 games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 81.6 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 86.2 points on 43 percent shooting. Allie Quigley is averaging 16.3 points and 3.6 assists while Stefanie Dolson is averaging 14.4 points and 5.6 rebounds.

The Wings are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 Wednesday games, 10-21 ATS in their last 31 vs. Eastern Conference and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Sky are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 home games, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest. The Wings are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Chicago, 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
The home team has won seven of the last 10 meetings between these two teams, and the Wings aren't good on the road. In fact, the Wings are shooting under 40 percent and are being outscored by seven points on the road this season. The Sky aren't worldbeaters in their own right, but in a game with two inconsistent clubs that show up when they want, I'll give the edge to the home team. Not super confident in either side in this spot, however.
