The Chicago Sky appear to be firing on all cylinders at the moment, and they're not a team I'm thrilled to step in front of right now. With that said, the Sky have failed to cover 5 of their last 7 home games. Also, the Phoenix Mercury are a still a super talented and experienced team, and I've said time and time again you shouldn't be eager to write them off just yet. Don't look now, but the Mercury have won 3 straight games. This line is disrespectful. Give me the Mercury and the free buckets.
