Washington at Chicago

2 units on Washington +6.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The Chicago Sky got off to a 3-1 start and looking like a team that was turning the corner. What they have done over their last six games is become the mediocre team they have always been in the WNBA, dropping five of their last six, and the lone win required overtime. It is hard to find justification for the Sky to be a 7-point favorite here as in their last 14 games, dating back to a year ago, they have beaten one team by more than 7 points. Going back a bit further, the Sky owns two wins in their last 23 games by more than 7 points, so clearly an overlay is in order here. The Mystics have been unimpressive and dealing with key injuries, but what this team has done is go 27-12-1 ATS in their last 40 on one day of rest. Play on Washington in this one.
