After snapping a season-high three-game skid their last time out


After snapping a season-high three-game skid their last time out, the Detroit Shock will try to continue their winning ways when they meet the struggling Chicago Sky on Tuesday night in the start of a home-and-home series heading into the All-Star break. Detroit now is looking to win back-to-back games after ending its slide with a convincing 111-82 rout of Phoenix on this past Sunday. The Shock also earned back a portion of the money they had bettors bleeding after six consecutive spread losses. Katie Smith scored 20 points and Deanna Nolan added 18 as Detroit scored WNBA-record 40 points in the third quarter and 72 in the second half against the often defenseless Mercury.

Chicago is off a pair of dastardly shooting games in which they missed 66.2 percent and 64.6 percent in losses and non-covers to Washington and Indiana. This has dropped the Sky to next to last in shooting percentage in the league to 40.9 percent.

The Shock (12-5, 7-9 ATS) has been victorious in all four contests with the then-expansion Sky (8-10, 10-8 ATS) last season, winning each game by an average of nearly 24 points. Chicago is just 4-14 ATS off a loss against a division rival over the last two seasons. Second place Detroit is a mixed bag. The Shock is 6-0 ATS in home games after playing two consecutive games as a home favorite, wining by 21.8 PPG. Focus is often an issue for this talented team who is 10-25 ATS as a home favorite of 6.5 to 12 points, scraping by with average win of less then four points.

This is the opening game of nationally televised action, with showing Detroit as 7-point favorites.
