The Dallas Wings are the better team here and have won both games against the Sparks this season. There’s good reason why the Wings are probably going to be favored here. However, the Sparks need a win here if they’re going to sneak into the playoffs, and they’re a veteran bunch that knows how to win when the chips on the line. I like the Sparks in this contest.
