Sabrina Ionescu is averaging 17.2 points and 6.2 assists, while Natasha Howard is averaging 15.1 points and 7.1 rebounds.

The Liberty are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Friday games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 vs. Eastern Conference. The Sky are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference. The under is 5-2 in Liberty last 7 vs. Eastern Conference. The over is 7-2 in Sky last 9 home games. The over is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings in Chicago.

The Chicago Sky should win this game and should be favored by a decent amount, but this is a lot of points when going up against a Sky team fighting for its playoff life. Also, this is a bit of a letdown spot after the Sky's loss to Vegas and with a road game against the Sun on deck. We could easily see the Sky come out flat a bit and do just enough to get the job done. Tricky line, but I'll lean toward the Liberty and the boatload of free points.
