The Dallas Wings and Los Angeles Sparks meet Sunday in WNBA action at the IMG Academy.
The Dallas Wings need a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Dallas Wings are averaging 81.2 points on 41.6 percent shooting and allowing 84.7 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Arike Ogunbowale is averaging 21.6 points and 3.3 assists while Allisha Gray is averaging 12.1 points and 4.1 rebounds. Satou Sabally is the third double-digit scorer and Marina Mabrey is dishing 1.7 assists. The Dallas Wings are shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc and 79.4 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 36.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.9 rebounds per game.
The Los Angeles Sparks look to stay hot while building on their six-game winning streak. The Los Angeles Sparks are averaging 86.5 points on 47.7 percent shooting and allowing 79 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Candace Parker is averaging 13.3 points and 3.8 assists while Chelsea Gray is averaging 12.8 points and 2.8 rebounds. Nneka Ogwumike is the third double-digit scorer and Riquna Williams is dishing 1.4 assists. The Los Angeles Sparks are shooting 41 percent from beyond the arc and 78.8 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Sparks are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.1 rebounds per game.
The Wings are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and 3-14 ATS in their last 17 Sunday games. The Sparks are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Western Conference, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 7-3 in Wings last 10 games as an underdog. The over is 9-4 in Sparks last 13 vs. Western Conference. The Wings are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Los Angeles and 33-16-2 ATS in the last 51 meetings.
The Dallas Wings can't score, and they're not winning or covering these days. The Los Angeles Sparks are riding a six-game winning streak and have covered seven of their last eight games. These spreads are getting larger and larger in the WNBA, but teams are starting to separate themselves. It's the Sparks in a comfortable victory or pass for me.
