The Wings are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The Mercury are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Thursday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss. The under is 21-8-1 in Wings last 30 overall. The over is 3-0-1 in Mercury last 4 home games. The Wings are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Phoenix.

The Dallas Wings have played their best ball on the road up to this point, but they've been rough offensively through four games. You can't expect to hang with a team as talented and deep as the Mercury when the offense shoots under 40 percent from the field. The Phoenix Mercury showed encouraging signs in their loss to Vegas, and their offense is as balanced as any team in the league. I question if the Wings can hang with the amount of firepower on the other side. Give me the Mercury and the reasonable chalk.
