Los Angeles Sparks vs Phoenix Mercury Prediction

I don’t want to back the Los Angeles Sparks as much as the next guy, but they have played their best ball at home and just beat the Aces. The Phoenix Mercury have had issues on the road, where they’re 3-6 SU. Also, the Mercury are already without Osborne and Taurasi, and there’s a chance they could be without Allen and Griner. Check the injury report before locking anything in, but I don’t see how the Mercury are favored on the road if Taurasi and Griner aren’t playing. Give me the Sparks and the free points.
