Phoenix Mercury vs Los Angeles Sparks Prediction

I’m not running to the window to lay chalk with the Phoenix Mercury in their current form, but 3 of their last 4 losses came on the road against good teams. Let’s give the Mercury a little grace. The Los Angeles Sparks aren’t winning games in their own right, and they’re a below average team on both sides of the ball. The Mercury are at least at home, and they’ll have the best player on the floor in this game. Oddsmakers are telling you what they think of the Sparks with this line. I’ll lay the points with the Mercury at home.
