Sky vs Sparks Betting Pick
This game will be played at Crypto.com Arena at 10:30 PM ET on Thursday, June 23, 2022.
The Chicago Sky and Los Angeles Sparks played an overtime game in the first game of their seasons. The Sparks won that game, but both teams look a lot different than they did in their season opener. Here, the Sky will look to continue their quest for the top spot in the WNBA, while the Sparks look to crack the top-eight. In our WNBA picks for Thursday, we take a look at Sky vs Sparks.
Why Bet The Sky:
✅ There is a huge difference in the roster for the Sky in their opener against the Sparks and their roster today. Chicago was without several key players, including Kahleah Copper, as players were finishing up their overseas commitments. With their roster in tact now, the Sky are playing some of the best basketball in the W and should be able to beat the Sparks handily.
✅ We saw the Sparks struggle to close out the Washington Mystics on Tuesday night. That is especially troubling given that the Mystics were without their best player in Elena Delle Donne. Expect the defensive limitations of the Sparks to haunt them in this game, as they have the second worst scoring defense in the WNBA.
✅ Player absences are not working in the favor of the Sparks in this game, as Chiney Ogwumike is set to miss this contest due to personal reasons. The Sky, meanwhile, do not have a single name on their injury report at the time of this writing. Chicago has superior depth when these teams are at full strength, let alone when a key player is missing for the Sparks.
The Chicago Sky completed the largest comeback in WNBA history on Tuesday night, coming back from 28 points down to beat the Las Vegas Aces. The fourth quarter of the game was largely anticlimactic, as the Sky had comfortably overtaken Las Vegas by that point despite their sizable first half deficit. Here, the Sky will look for a faster start but a similar result to what they enjoyed on Tuesday night.
While the Sky fell to the Sparks at home to open the season, they did not have Kahleah Copper or Allie Quigley for that contest. Chicago is much better positioned to take on the guards for the Sparks in this contest. And with a big group that is agile enough to cause problems for Liz Cambage, the Sky are deserved favorites in this rematch.
Los Angeles Sparks
Coming into this Thursday night contest against the Chicago Sky, the LA Sparks sit percentage points behind the New York Liberty for the eighth spot in the Western Conference. The question for this game is whether they can muster a consistent enough 40 minutes to improve their positioning. In order to do so, the Sparks have to find a way to slow down the Sky.
Chicago is at its best when it is generating turnovers and running the break. The Sparks prefer to run things out of the halfcourt through Cambage and Nneka Ogwumike, as they average the fewest field goal attempts in the league. If the Sparks can win the contrast of styles between these two teams, they could win this game, but that will be no easy task.
