DeWanna Bonner is averaging 18.7 points and 3.4 assists while Alyssa Thomas is averaging 15.6 points and 9.7 rebounds.

The Chicago Sky look for a win after winning four of their last six games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 86.8 points on 49 percent shooting and allowing 84.6 points on 46.4 percent shooting. Kahleah Copper is averaging 14.7 points and 4.7 rebounds while Allie Quigley is averaging 14.4 points and 2.6 assists.

The Sun are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog, 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 Friday games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Sky are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 Friday games, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The over is 5-2 in Sun last 7 games as an underdog. The over is 19-6-1 in Sky last 26 overall. The Sun are 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Connecticut Sun continue to struggle mainly on the offensive end and have failed to cover seven of their last 10 games. The Chicago Sky are playing some of their best basketball in years and look really good offensively. If these numbers hold true, the Sky should have little trouble cruising to a comfortable victory. I'll lay the chalk.
