Randy’s Free Pick
The Chicago Sky looked good in their opener, but the jury is still out on what type of team they're going to be with a lot of roster turnover. The Phoenix Mercury are better than what they showed in their season opener, and you know the place is going to be packed welcoming Brittney Griner back. I expect the Mercury to bounce back. I'll side with the Mercury and whatever the line is.
