Chicago at Washington

3 units on Washington +2.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Chicago Sky have played with authority at home, but have laid down like lambs on the road where they are 3-9 on the season. Their problem is an offense that continues to put up a stinker in at least one quarter of the game, and it usually is decisive against them. Their last seven road games show them scoring 8 points or less in a quarter four times, and 11 points or less seven times. It is extremely difficult to win like that. Meanwhile, the Washington Mystics are a much-improved team, and continue to be undervalued by the oddsmakers as winners of just five games on the season, but covering seven of their last eight. Play on Washington in this one.
