Free WNBA Pick: Phoenix Mercury -1

Chicago and Phoenix are playing very well at the moment, but the advantage here goes to Phoenix playing on its home court. The Phoenix trio of Brittney Griner, Skylar Diggins-Smith and Diana Taurasi will be too much for the Chicago defense to contain. Phoenix has covered the number in seven of the last eight overall and the Mercury defense will limit the production of Chicago's Candace Parker and Kahleah Copper. Final Score Prediction, Phoenix Mercury wins and covers ATS 93-81
