Chicago Sky have a 3-4 record so far this season and currently sit on the third to last place of the East. They lost four of their last five matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Phoenix Mercury with a 79-96 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Allie Quigley with 17 ppg, followed by Diamond DeShields with 13.9 ppg and 5.4 boards per game. Courtney Vandersloot adds 13.3 ppg.
The Sparks led the Sky 2-1 wins last season but were 1-1 at home. They won once with a 79-70 score and they lost once with an 80-82 score. Sparks are 2-1 at home so far this season, while Sky are 1-2 on the road. Sky are better offensively, scoring 80.3 ppg to Sparks’ 79.7, while Sparks have the third-best defense in the league, allowing 79.5 ppg to Sky’s second-worse of 87.4.
The Sparks have a better field goal percentage, shooting with 46.4% to Sky’s 44.4%, while Sky have a better 3-point percentage, shooting with a second-best of 37.7% to Sparks’ 31.5%. Sky are better in rebounding (34.1 to 26) and in assists made (19.1 to 17.5), while Sparks are better in turnovers committed (12.5 to 16). Sparks are the favorite for the win but Vegas odds give them a -12.5 spread and don’t expect them to beat the odds as the Sky will definitely force a closer game than that.
