Nneka Ogwumike is averaging 18.4 points and 2 assists, while Brittney Sykes is averaging 11.5 points and 3.6 rebounds.

The Sun are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Sparks are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Tuesday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. The over is 5-2 in Sun last 7 overall. The under is 65-32 in Sparks last 97 home games. The Sun are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Los Angeles and 9-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

The Connecticut Sun should be favored as they're playing their best ball of the season, they're arguably the most talented team in the league, and they're fighting for that second seed in the playoffs. The Los Angeles Sparks have been terrible over these last two weeks, and it's hard to find confidence to back them. With all that said, the Sparks still have a chance at a playoff spot and this is a must win game if they're going to stay in the race. The Sparks just beat a good Washington team on the road, and they end the year with 3 straight home games. The path is there for the Sparks. I expect a motivated performance. Give me the points.
