Kahleah Cooper is averaging 16 points and 0.7 assists, while Candace Parker is averaging 15.9 points and 11 rebounds.

The Sun are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 road games and 14-4 ATS in their last 18 games overall. The Sky are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Sun last 5 overall. The under is 5-1 in Sky last 6 overall. The Sun are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Chicago and 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

The Chicago Sky should be favored at home for obvious reasons, and we've seen them bounce back from ugly losses many times this season, including the playoffs against the Liberty. However, as I've said many times, the Connecticut Sun are just too talented of a team for me to ignore in the underdog role. The Sun are also coming off a massive blowout in game 4, the most lopsided game of the series, and that cant be ignored. Home teams usually get the job done in a deciding game, but the Sun are gritty defensively, and they're coming off their best offensive performance of the postseason. Should be a tight back and forth game. I'll take a shot with the road dog.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
