Chicago at Phoenix

3 units on Chicago +6 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Phoenix Mercury has really fallen off sharply since winning it all in 2009. Last year they finished 3-8 straight-up including the playoffs after a 5-11 start, and this year they weigh in at 4-4 through eight games. Last year they beat this Chicago team by a single point here then lost to them in Chicago by 9. The Sky is improving, while the Mercury has become stagnant. One good sign of a team that is growing is their competitive nature on the road, and the Sky has delivered a 12-3-1 ATS mark on the road in their last 16 as a dog. This looks like a live dog here, so play Chicago in this one.
