Chicago Sky vs Minnesota Lynx Prediction: Sky to Win

Chicago Sky vs Minnesota Lynx Prediction: The Chicago Sky will start as favorites to win their upcoming game against the Minnesota Lynx as per the latest predictions.

As we almost reach halfway through an exciting regular season, it has become important for teams to not drop too many games to stay strong in the playoff contention.  Tonight, an interesting matchup awaits as the Chicago Sky will host the Minnesota Lynx for their next WNBA fixture.

The Chicago side is on a roll as they recently snatched the top position from the Sun in the Eastern Conference. They ended their last game with a thumping win by a margin of 23 points against the Sparks. It was a historic night for Candace Parker as she created a WNBA with the most number of triple-doubles in a career. It was her third triple-double as Parker finished with 10 points, 14 rebounds, and 10 assists. The Sky will look to consolidate its position at the top by dominating the Lynx tonight.

The Minnesota Lynx needs a miraculous effort in the remaining games of the season if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive. The four-time WNBA champions have looked completely out of touch in most of the games. However, two consecutive wins should have given the side some confidence.

The Lynx is coming off a win against the Mercury in the last fixture. It was the comeback game for Sylvia Fowles who was suffering from an injury. She gave an impressive performance of double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Moriah Jefferson was the other star performer as she scored 21 points with 5 assists. The Lynx needs to repeat the same performance against the Sky at the Wintrust Arena tonight.
