The Chicago Sky in the underdog role is attractive, as you can make a case they're still the best team in the league, and you rarely get them in these spots. With that said, the Connecticut Sun are the most talented team in the league to me, something I've said countless times this year, and I'm not going to fade them at home when not being asked to lay much. The Sun haven't lost back to back games since June 19-22. Crucial game 3. Give me the home team and the small chalk.
