The over is 5-2 in Sun last 7 overall. The under is 4-1 in Sky last 5 overall. The Sun are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Chicago and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Chicago Sky are going to be favored for obvious reasons as they're the best team, the defending champs and at home. You can also argue the Liberty series was good for the Sky, and it will get them focused moving forward. The Sky also won all 4 games against the Sun this season. With all that said, the Connecticut Sun are arguably the most talented team in the league, something I've said time and time again this year, and I have a hard time turning them down in the underdog role. The Sun are more than capable of winning this series. Give me the Sun and the free buckets.
