The Sparks are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Sky are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The under is 36-15 in Sparks last 51 home games. The over is 5-2 in Sky last 7 road games.
The Los Angeles Sparks finally looked like th Sparks when they beat up on Las Vegas, and there could be more where that came from now that they're healthy. The Chicago Sky are better than most give them credit for, but the lack of defense is scary, especially when on the road against good teams. The Sky are allowing 83.6 points on the road this season while losing by an average of five points. The Sparks have also won eight of the last 10 games against the Sky and have covered seven of those games. I'lll lay the chalk.
