Randy’s Free Pick
The Las Vegas Aces are going to be massive favorites on a nightly basis given their talent, and their opening performance doesn't help matters. However, the Los Angeles Sparks looked good in their opener in their own right, and they're capable of being a lot better than they were a year ago. The Sparks played with a good pace, and you know that crowd will up for it given the Aces coming to town. Lots of points here, and maybe a slight overreaction to Vegas. Give me the Sparks and the points.
