Time: 8:00 p.m. ET
Venue: Wintrust Arena — Chicago, IL

The Chicago Sky will be looking to keep pace at the top of the Eastern Conference when they take on the Atlanta Dream on Friday night. Chicago has captured back-to-back close wins, most recently beating the New York Liberty by a score of 88-86. Four different players scored in double digits.

Meanwhile, Atlanta has come back down to earth following a 7-4 start, dropping each of their last three contests. They suffered a loss against the Connecticut Sun on Wednesday despite a 21-point performance from Asia Durr.

Moneyline: ATL: (+330) | CHI: (-450)
Spread: ATL: +9.5 (-118) | CHI: -9.5 (-104)
Total: 157.5 — Over: (-106) | Under: (-114)
Odds to Win WNBA Championship: ATL: (+8500) | CHI: (+440)

It's no surprise to see the Sky heavily favored in this one as this is a battle between two teams heading in opposite directions. Chicago's home record of 4-2 greatly outweighs that of Atlanta's 3-4 road record. The low total here speaks to that of the defense that is expected to be played in this game. Both the Sky and the Dream are allowing less than 78 points per game this season.

Dream vs Sky Prediction & Pick

All NBA win probability predictions and picks are according to FiveThirtyEight.
Prediction: Chicago Sky win (80.0%)

FiveThirtyEight is strongly leaning toward Chicago in this one. It's hard not to, considering the Dream are averaging the fewest points per game in the WNBA (76.4). It's not going to be easy for them to get to the rim with Candace Parker and Emma Meesseman waiting there to greet them.

Chicago is also averaging the most assists per game of any team in the league. Their style of play is conducive to creating scoring opportunities on wide open shots. Expect more of the same Friday.

Final Score Prediction: Dream: 71 | Sky: 83

Dream vs Sky Betting Trends

- Atlanta is 1-4 straight up in its last five away games.
- The total has hit the under in eight of Atlanta's last 12 away games.
- Chicago is 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last five games.
- The total has hit the under in six of Chicago's last nine home games.
- With an 7-7 record, Atlanta sits fourth in the 2022 WNBA Eastern Conference standings.
- With an 9-4 record, Chicago sits second in the 2022 WNBA Eastern Conference standings.

The spread is an attractive bet here, but backing the under on the point total has the most value. Atlanta fails to score a ton of points on the road, cashing the under in eight of their last 12 away games. On the other side, Chicago plays stellar defense at home and has cashed the under in six of their last nine home games. There's little reason to believe either of those trends change on Friday.
