Shane’s Free Pick
The Lynx have had the Sparks number this year, and it’s going to be no different in this game. The Sparks defense is going to really struggle to get the offense going, and Collier is going to have another big game. The Sparks are going to have no answer for it, and that will be the difference. Back the Lynx against the spread.
