The Sparks are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Liberty are 16-35-1 ATS in their last 52 vs. Western Conference, 9-20-1 ATS in their last 30 Tuesday games and 16-33-3 ATS in their last 52 games overall. The under is 21-5 in Sparks last 26 Tuesday games. The Sparks are 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings in New York and 1-4-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Los Angeles Sparks are obviously the better team here, but they're not covering in the favorite role lately and these odds seem to get larger by the game. The New York Liberty aren't winning, but they've done a better job of hanging around lately and have shown an improved effort defensively. I'll take a shot with the points here.
