The Chicago Sky and Minnesota Lynx meet Thursday in WNBA action at the IMG Academy.
The Chicago Sky look for another victory to improve to 3-0 on the season. The Chicago Sky are averaging 92 points on 50 percent shooting and allowing 82 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Kahleah Copper is averaging 19.5 points and six rebounds while Azura Stevens is averaging 16.5 points and two assists. Gabby Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Allie Quigley is grabbing three rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 38.5 percent from beyond the arc and 78.6 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 28 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.5 rebounds per game.
The Minnesota Lynx look for a bounce back victory to get a game above a .500 record. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 71.5 points on 38 percent shooting and allowing 79.5 points on 43.9 percent shooting. Sylvia Fowles is averaging 16 points and 14.5 rebounds while Damiris Dantas is averaging 13.5 points and three assists. Napheesa Collier is the third double-digit scorer and Shenise Johnson is grabbing 1.5 rebounds. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 25.7 percent from beyond the arc and 85.7 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 29.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 39 rebounds per game.
The Sky are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Lynx are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog. The over is 34-14-3 in Sky last 51 overall. The under is 21-10 in Lynx last 31 games as an underdog. The Sky are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
I mentioned in the first writeup that the Chicago Sky were a team to watch this season as a possible title contender, and they're off to a 2-0 start with an offense that's lighting it up. The Minnesota Lynx aren't the same team from past years and they're shooting just 38 percent from the field through two games. I have to lay the reasonable chalk with the Sky here.
