The Sparks are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 Sunday games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall.

The Sparks are healthy and are starting to play to their potential, as they're averaging nearly 80 points on almost 46 percent shooting in their last five games. The Sky are hot and are covering numbers as of late, but the Sparks at home will be a different test for this squad.
