The Los Angeles Sparks haven't played their best on the road, but they're going through their best stretch of the season where they're winning their last five games by 9.6 points and shooting 44.2 percent from the field. The Atlanta Dream have yet to string wins together, and they lose at home by an average of 5.9 points and shoot just 36.2 percent from the field. I still want nothing to do with the Dream. Give me the Sparks and the reasonable chalk.
