While it's still early in the season, this feels like two teams heading in completely different directions. The Los Angeles Sparks have defensive issues, mainly defending the three, and they're struggling to finish games during this losing streak. The Las Vegas Aces have been a buzz saw on the offensive end, blowing teams out in the majority of their wins, and they've been covering numbers as well. Big number, but it's nothing Vegas can't cover based on its current form. I'll lay the chalk with the home team, as the Sparks are in shaky at best form right now.
