Chicago Sky vs Dallas Wings Betting Odds and Prediction: Recent Form
Dallas has been the better team this season as they have snatched three wins out of two against Chicago with the last being an 80-76 win on 17th August.
Allisha Gray was at the top of her form as he bagged 20 points for Dallas in that match. It was a close call as Allie Quigley was too dominant with a 27 points performance. The 35-year-old was equally effective in both 9-of-16 shooting and 7-of-9 shooting.
She is currently third with a 44.6% three-pointer clip. She has been a consistent sharpshooter throughout his career and Chicago will be depending on her a lot.
Chicago bench made all the difference in the last match as five substitutes contributed a whopping 54 points which led to Chicago’s win over Indiana Fever.
Courtney Vandersloot put in another fine shift as her five assists helped her to finish the season with 8.6 assists per game on average. Quigley again showed her skill as he was involved in eight rebounds.
For Dallas Marina Mabrey was one of the top performers as they shrugged off the challenge of Sparks. Mabrey scored 16 points for her side. Isabelle Harrison returned to the court after a while as he missed a number of games after contracting the Covid-19 virus. She also registered 14 points in the game.
Diamond DeShields also was very influential as her second-half performance was pivotal against Indiana.
“This was their last regular-season game. “You don’t ever want to play down energetically, but trying to be self-motivated today I think had something to do with [the slow first half].”
“What you want to do is make them increase their shot volume, so their efficiency is low.”
DeShields further added, “And then neutralize the rest of their teammates. You have to focus on Arike [Ogunbowale]. She’s a great scorer, but I think we have the pieces to do it right.”
Chicago Sky vs Dallas Wings Betting Odds and Prediction: Predicted Winner
Chicago’s Candace Parker could play a pivotal role in this one-round elimination match. They have mostly been consistent this season but inconsistency also has been an issue for them. For Dallas, this is Vickie Johnson’s first stint as a Wings coach and it would be huge if he could lead the side to the Championship. The team mostly comprises of young talents and they certainly will have a go in this clash.
Pundits are betting big on Chicago Sky as they have wealth of playoffs experience. Stefanie Dolson, Parker, Quigley, and Vandersloot will bring their playoff experience into this match to keep their chances high in the game. Dallas could still ring in an upset but given the current scenario, Chicago will have an edge.
