Will update with trends once they're released.
The Seattle Storm are the best team in the league by a comfortable margin, and they're playing like it right now with the wins and covers piling up at an insane pace. However, the Chicago Sky are playing well in their own right with wins in five of their last seven tries, and they have one of the best offenses in the league that gives them a fighting chance each night. The Sky are second in points per game, first in field goal percentage and third in three point percentage. I mentioned before the season that the Sky were title contenders, and this is a chance for them to prove it on national TV. This game means more to the Sky as a statement game.
Give me the Sky and whatever the points end up being.
