The Sparks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Fever are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. Western Conference. The over is 5-1 in Sparks last 6 Saturday games. The over is 4-0 in Fever last 4 overall. The Sparks are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Indiana and 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
The Los Angeles Sparks already beat the Fever this eason by 11 points, and they're playing even better basketball now while covering numbers. The Indiana Fever don't play good enough defense to hang with better teams in the league and they've had zero success against the Sparks in the past. I have almost no choice but to eat the chalk with the Sparks.
