Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 19 points and 2.6 assists while Tiffany Mitchell is averaging 14.1 points and 3.9 rebounds.

The Indiana Fever are allowing 36.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.3 rebounds per game.
The Chicago Sky look for a win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 87.1 points on 49.9 percent shooting and allowing 82.5 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Allie Quigley is averaging 14.3 points and 2.6 assists while Kahleah Copper is averaging 14.3 points and 4.5 rebounds. Cheyenne Parker is the third double-digit scorer and Courtney Vandersloot is dishing 8.7 assists. The Chicago Sky are shooting 36.7 percent from beyond the arc and 79.9 percent from the free throw line.

The Fever are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog. The Sky are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 Saturday games, 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Fever last 7 overall. The under is 5-1 in Sky last 6 overall. The Fever are 18-7-1 ATS in the last 26 meetings in Chicago and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Indiana Fever don't shoot the ball well, and they're one of the worst defensive teams in the league. The Chicago Sky are winning and covering, looking more and more like the potential title contender I called them before the season began. As long as the Sky score the way they have all season, the Fever will have serious issues keeping up. The Sky should win this game by double digits.
