The Los Angeles Sparks and Las Vegas Aces meet Friday in WNBA action at the Mandalay Bay Event Center.

The Los Angeles Sparks look for a bounce back performance after winning six of their last eight games. The Los Angeles Sparks are averaging 79.9 points on 47.7 percent shooting and allowing 75.1 points on 43.3 percent shooting. Nneka Ogwumike is averaging 16.2 points and 7.4 rebounds while Candace Parker is averaging 16.7 points and 4.3 assists. Chelsea Gray is the third double-digit scorer and Odyssey Sims is dishing 3.2 assists. The Los Angeles Sparks are shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc and 79.2 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Sparks are allowing 32 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.1 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Sparks have split their last six road games.

The Las Vegas Aces look for a spark of consistency here after splitting their last eight games. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 81.1 points on 42.2 percent shooting and allowing 85.8 points on 43.8 percent shooting. A'ja Wilson is averaging 20.2 points and 8.9 rebounds while Kayla McBride is averaging 18.7 points and 2.4 assists. Kelsey Plum is dishing 3.3 assists and Tamera Young is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Las Vegas Aces are shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc and 76.5 percent from the free throw line. The Las Vegas Aces are allowing 32.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.2 rebounds per game. The Las Vegas Aces have lost four of their last five home games.

The Sparks are 21-8-1 ATS in their last 30 Friday games, 9-4 ATS in their last 13 road games and 21-8 ATS in their last 29 games overall. The Aces are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 vs. Western Conference. The Sparks are 4-10-1 ATS in the last 15 meetings and the under is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.

The Los Angeles Sparks are on the end of a back to back and still without probably their best player in Nneka Ogwumike. Playing on tired legs and not having the depth you don't usually have are two bad things when going against the youngest team in the league. The Las Vegas Aces have improved their play big time over the last couple of weeks and have been on the wrong side of some tough losses. This should be a game where the Aces can push the pace and hang around. 

Pick:
Las Vegas Aces +6
