Houston at Chicago

Sunday 09/14 04:05 PM Eastern

4 units on Chicago -196 (moneyline) (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: LOSS

Yes, Houston is a better team than Chicago overall. But, this game is being played in Chicago and that makes all the difference. At home, the Sky are a .500 team. on the road, the Comets have lost 13 of 16 games. The defense is the difference as Chicago holds opponents to a respectable 70.9 per game here while Houston gives up 78.5 on the road. If you look at how these teams are playing right now, the contrast is even more stark. Houston has given up 84.2 per game in their last five while Chicago has allowed just 69.4 - a fifteen point difference! Will they win by five or more? I'm not so shure. But, I really like the Sky to win this game outright.
