Chicago at Sacramento

3 units on Chicago +230 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Picking a team on the moneyline that is on the road in the WNBA has to be a very selective process as excluding Atlanta, who can't win anywhere; home teams are 50-24 on the season straight up. One team that hasn't been able to cash in is the Sacramento Monarchs who have a losing record on their home court. They have dropped their last three at home by a margin of almost 13 points per game and are really struggling. Chicago has shown the ability to score, topping 100 against Phoenix, but when they do score they find the win column, and one such win was by 10 points over the Monarchs where they scored 87. The key here is the Monarchs are just 2-6 when they allow 70 or more points and the Sky are beginning to show some offense which should be enough to propel them on the road for an outright win.
