The Sparks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Mystics are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Sparks last 8 road games. The under is 4-1 in Mystics last 5 home games. The Sparks are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Washington.
The Los Angeles Sparks are watching their season fall apart before their eyes with 6 straight losses and a defense that can't get stops. However, it's important to note that a lot of the Sparks losses during this stretch have been competitive, especially late, where their last 2 games have been decided by a combined 5 points. The Washington Mystics are easily the better team here, but they just got slapped by the Sparks and a lot of their recent lines have been weird. The Mystics should win this game, but this line is steep. Give me the Sparks and the boatload of points.
