The Sparks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 vs. Eastern Conference. The Fever are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Sparks are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
Both teams are finding their groove a bit, but the Fever are simply on another level and haven't lost a home game since June 26th. Also, the Fever are a lot healther than the Sparks, who are likely going to be without their second-best scorer. Take the Fever and the reasonable chalk.
