A'ja Wilson is averaging 20.3 points and 8.7 rebounds while Angel McCoughtry is averaging 14.7 points and 5.2 rebounds.

The Los Angeles Sparks look for a win after winning 12 of their last 15 games. The Los Angeles Sparks are averaging 85.6 points on 48.6 percent shooting and allowing 80.1 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Candace Parker is averaging 14.3 points and 4.5 assists while Chelsea Gray is averaging 14.3 points and 3.3 rebounds. Nneka Ogwumike is the third double-digit scorer and Riquna Williams is dishing 1.5 assists. The Los Angeles Sparks are shooting 40.8 percent from beyond the arc and 78.8 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Sparks are allowing 36.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.5 rebounds per game.
The Aces are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest. The Sparks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Aces last 5 overall. The Aces are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings..
The Las Vegas Aces beat the Sparks by four points when these teams met a little over a month ago, and they've been arguably the most consistent team in the league over the last month. The Los Angeles Sparks haven't been that far behind, but they do have issues defending the deep ball, which raises questions against the bette teams in the league, and they are coming off a rough outright loss to the Washington Mystics. The Sparks were 7.5-point favorites in that game against Washington. The Sparks have also split their last six games, so you question if this team is coasting heading into the playoffs.
I have more confidence in the Las Vegas Aces at this stage, so I'll back them and whatever the line is.
