The Sky are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Lynx are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 5-2-1 in Sky last 8 road games. The under is 4-1 in Lynx last 5 overall. The Sky are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

The Chicago Sky are off to a decent start through two games, and they have the offensive horses to blow lesser teams out. The Minnesota Lynx have looked terrible through three contests, as they've done little well on either end of the floor, and they're getting killed defensively. The Sky could push for triple digit points if the Lynx aren't careful. Thick number, especially for a road team, but I have no choice but to side with the Sky.
