Dallas Wings at Chicago Sky

The Chicago Sky and Dallas Wings face off in Round 1 of the WNBA playoffs on Thursday at Wintrust Arena. These two teams have played three times this year, with the Wings winning two of the games. 

The Sky come into this game sitting with a 16-16 record overall which puts them second place in the Eastern Conference. Chicago’s biggest issue this year has been with their inconsistency, and they have lost two of their last three games. The one win during that stretch of games came in their last game against the Indiana Fever, a game they scored 98 points in. The Sky on the season are averaging 83.3 points per game while their defense is giving up 81.9 points per game. Kahleah Copper has been the best player for the Sky averaging 14.4 points while shooting 45.9 percent from the field. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Dallas Wings who sit with a 14-18 record overall which puts them in 5th place in the Western Conference. Dallas has won two of their last three games but each of the wins has been close. Over the last two games, the Wings have won by a total of four points. The Dallas Wings are averaging 81.1 points per game while their defense is giving up 81.7 points per game. Arike Ogunbowale has been the best player for the Wings averaging 18.7 points while shooting 38.3 percent from the field and 37.6 percent from behind the three-point line. 

The Wings have had issues winning games in blowout fashion, and I expect it’s going to be the Chicago Sky that finds the success. The Sky’s offense is better, and they are going to get the job done. Back Chicago to cover the spread.
