CHI vs DAL Dream11 Prediction WNBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Chicago Sky vs Dallas Wings

Share

CHI vs DAL Dream11: The WNBA is clearly in its most volatile state during the Regular Season as the Playoffs are around two weeks away and the time to make a winning run is collapsing. There are teams that are still unsure whether they will go on to the Playoffs. One of those teams in the Dallas Wings will take on Chicago Sky, the best team in the league.

The Wings are having another here-and-there season, not going anywhere despite having a more-than-decent roster. They have 13 wins and 16 losses, winning two of the last three games. In their last game, they defeated the Dream 81-68 as Kayla Thornton had a 21 points night.

The Sky has surely been the best team so far and with a record of 23 wins and seven losses, they sit at the top of the standings. They have won 13 out of the last 15 games and come into this contest after defeating the Sun 95-92 in Overtime as Kahleah Copper showered 27 points.

The Sky and the Wings just met 10 days ago when the Sky emerged as victories. Sky has already won the season series two-nil.

Host: Chicago Sky
Visitors: Dallas Wings
Match Timing: 3 August, @ 06:30 AM (+05:30 UTC)
Venue: Wintrust Arena

WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Sky looks unstoppable

The Sky has a lot of veteran players and most of their key players are all-around experts. They don’t rely on just one or two players to generate the bulk of the offense. They move the ball around well, probe their actions, and rarely force the action, searching for the best shot. The bench became better during the offseason with the addition of Rebekah Gardner and defensively, the team looks even better than last season. Seriously, the Sky is the deepest team in all positions.

The Wings remain an enigma

The Wings continue to be a mystery. Arike Ogunbowale, Allisha Gray, and Marina Mabrey are all incredible shooters but despite that, their percentages can be rough. The ball movement has been an issue once again but the biggest issue is their defense. While Kayla Thornton has done well, the team defense doesn’t buy into the “help the helper” concept. The Wings have done a lot of amazing things this season but they don’t look like the type of them that can take two wins in the Playoffs against a top-tiered team.

WNBA Scores, Fantasy Basketball Top Picks

Arike Ogunbowale(DAL)
Points: 21
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 08

Courtney Vandersloot(CHI)
Points: 16
Rebounds: 08
Assists: 12
Steals: 02

Guard Vandersloot is one of the best passers to play the game but she is an all-around threat, also having a decent shooting streak. I believe she will be in 10-16 points, 7-10 assists, 4-7 rebounds, and 1-3 steals range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 29-41

Teaira McCowan(DAL)
Points: 14
Rebounds: 14
Assists: 01

Steals: 01
Blocks: 01

McCowan is a nightmare to guard as one of the tallest players and she can both get easy lay-ups while grabbing a ton of boards. I believe she will be in 12-18 points and 9-14 rebounds range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 26-36

Kahleah Copper(CHI)
Points: 27
Rebounds: 05
Assists: 02
Guard Copper is an elite scorer who is one of the most acrobatic players while also providing defense. I believe she will be in 18-24 points, 4-7 rebounds, and 1-3 steals range.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-38

Allisha Gray(DAL)
Points: 07
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 08
Steals: 03

Emma Messeman(CHI)
Points: 10
Rebounds: 03
Assists: 05
Steals: 01
Blocks: 01

Expected Fantasy Points Range: 22-38

CHI vs DAL DREAM11 LINEUP BALANCERS

  • Azure Stevens(CHI) had 12 points, 10 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 blocks, 1 steal in the last game. Azure supplies great scoring and rebounding mostly off the bench. I believe she will be in 8-14 points and 6-10 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 17-27
  • Marina Mabrey(DAL) had 8 points, 4 assists, 1 steal, 1 block in the last game. Guard Mabrey has been struggling a bit after such a strong start. I believe she will be in 9-14 points range and 4-6 assists range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 15-23
  • Kayla Thornton(DAL) had 21 points, 7 rebounds, 2 steals in the last game. Thornton has a solid season, can have some offense sparkle but is mostly a rebounder and defender. I believe she will be in 9-14 points and 5-8 rebounds range.
    Expected Fantasy Points Range: 14-22
  • Rebekah Gardner(CHI) had 8 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 3 steals in the last game. Wiry Gardner has been a phenomenal performer off the bench. I believe she will be in 6-12 points and 1-3 steals range.
