Shane’s Free Pick
The Lynx have found success so far this season against the Sparks and it’s going to be no different in this game. The Sparks offense isn’t going to be as strong here, and that is going to be the difference as Minnesota is going to get the job done here. Back the Lynx to cover the spread here.
