The Los Angeles Sparks look for another victory after just beating the Phoenix Mercury by 23 points.

Nneka Ogwumike is averaging 21 points and seven rebounds while Seimone Augustus is averaging 14 points and two assists.

The Los Angeles Sparks are shooting 45 percent from beyond the arc and 82.4 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Sparks are allowing 32.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31 rebounds per game.
The Chicago Sky look for a statement victory after beating the Las Vegas Aces on Sunday by two points. The Chicago Sky are averaging 88 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 86 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Kahleah Copper is averaging 18 points and three rebounds while Gabby Williams is averaging 14 points and one assist.

The Sparks are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 Tuesday games, 1-7 ATS in their last 8 road games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference. The Sky are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games, 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 games as an underdog and 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The Sparks are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Chicago and 13-5 ATS in the last 18 meetings.
The Chicago Sky should be a team to watch this season with all the players who returned, but they didn't look good defensively in their opener and probably should have lost to the Aces. The Los Angeles Sparks were absolutely dominant against the Mercury and had all of their key players looking like they were in midseason form. If the Sparks play like they're capable of, they're one of the best teams in the league. I'll lay the reasonable number.
