These have been the best teams in the league all season long and we're not used to getting either side in the underdog role. So, I have to take my chances with the Sparks and the points. The Sparks have also won four of the last six meetings against the Storm, while Seattle has also failed to cover four of its last five games overall. Give me the points in what should be a fun back and forth contest.
