The Sparks are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Saturday games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The Stars are 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Sparks are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in San Antonio and 1-7-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings overall.
The Sparks have given us no reason to fade them this season, as them and the Lynx are just bullying this league at the moment. The Stars are just a bad basketball team and playing at home doesn't help much. The Sparks just beat the Stars pretty easily a couple of days ago, and I'm not sure we see a different result here. I'll take Los Angeles to win by double digits.
