Spread: Connecticut Sun -13
Connecticut Sun have a 17-13 record (14-16 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit on the third place of the East. In their last game they saw a five-game winning streak getting snapped by losing on the road against the Chicago Sky with an 86-97 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Chiney Ogwumike with 14.5 ppg, adding 7.2 boards per game. She is followed by Jasmine Thomas with 12.7 ppg, 3.2 boards and a team high 4.5 dimes per game, while Courtney Williams adds 12.3 ppg, 6.1 boards and 3.3 dimes per game.
Chicago Sky have a 11-19 record (13-17 against the spread) so far this season currently sit on the third to last place of the Eastern Conference and of the whole league. In their last game they snapped a two-game losing streak by winning at home against the Connecticut Sun with a 97-86 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Allie Quigley with 16.2 ppg, followed by Diamond DeShields with 13.4 ppg and 4.9 boards per game. Courtney Vandersloot adds 12.3 ppg, 3.5 boards and a team high 8.6 dimes per game.
In their two previous meetings earlier this season, each team has won once (Chicago at home by 11 points and Connecticut on the road by 38). Connecticut are 9-4 at home this season, while Chicago are 5-8 on the road. Connecticut have the third-best offense in the league with 85.9 ppg to Chicago’s 83, while Chicago have the worse offense in the league, allowing 90 ppg to Connecticut’s 80.9. Connecticut also have better percentages in field goals, shooting with 45.5% to Chicago’s 44.9, while both teams have identical 3-point percentage (36.2%). Connecticut are better in rebounding, grabbing 37.1 to Chicago’s 32.9 and in turnovers committed (13.8 to 15.3), while Chicago are better in assists made (20.8 to 19.4). Connecticut are the absolute favorite for the home win and Vegas odds give them a -13 spread but don’t expect them to beat the odds as Chicago will force a closer game than that.
