Shane’s Free Pick
The Sky know to find success in this game they need to control the pace and the defense is going to need to be good. In this game, I expect the Sky’s defense is going to step up again, and although it might not be enough to get the job done, it’s going to keep this game lower scoring. Back the under to cash here.
