The Los Angeles Sparks and Dallas Wings meet Tuesday in WNBA action at the College Park Center.

The Los Angeles Sparks look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Los Angeles Sparks are averaging 79.4 points on 41.5 percent shooting and allowing 79.8 points on 40.8 percent shooting. Chelsea Gray is averaging 14.2 points and 4.8 assists while Nneka Ogwumike is averaging 13.5 points and 9.2 rebounds. Chiney Ogwumike is the third double-digit scorer and Riquna Williams is grabbing 2.5 rebounds. The Los Angeles Sparks are shooting 36.9 percent from beyond the arc and 84 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Sparks are allowing 36.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.1 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Sparks have split their last six road games.

The Dallas Wings look for a win after losing four of their last six games. The Dallas Wings are averaging 69.1 points on 37.1 percent shooting and allowing 74.6 points on 41.8 percent shooting. Arike Ogunbowale is averaging 13.4 points and 2.4 rebounds while Kayla Thornton is averaging 11.2 points and 1.9 assists. Allisha Gray is dishing 2.6 assists and Theresa Plaisance is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Dallas Wings are shooting 27.8 percent from beyond the arc and 81.7 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 32.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.9 rebounds per game. The Dallas Wings have won four of their last five home games.

The Sparks are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 1 days rest, 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Wings are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 7-17-1 ATS in their last 25 games overall. The Sparks are 4-13 ATS in the last 17 meetings in Dallas and 8-26-2 ATS in the last 36 meetings. The under is 19-7 in Wings last 26 overall. The over is 4-0 in Sparks last 4 overall.

Early games are usually sloppy, competitive and tend to come down to the wire, and this is a very easy game for a west coast team in the Sparks. The Dallas Wings have won three of the last four meetings against the Sparks, and they play their best ball by far at home where they win by an average of 0.3 points and are allowing just 39.8 percent shooting. The Los Angeles Sparks continue to be hit or miss overall, and they're losing on the road by an average of 4.4 points. I'll take a shot with the Wings at home and the free points.

Pick:
Dallas Wings +6.5
