Sparks Betting Preview

The Sparks have been nothing but a major disappointment this season and they are coming off another loss in the last game. The Sparks scored 69 points and that led to the seven point defeat. Nneka Ogwumike finished with 20 points and eight rebounds. The Sparks are averaging 78.2 points while their defense is giving up 81.7 points per game. The offense is ranked 10th while the defense is ranked 4th. The Sparks are going to need to find a way to get the offense going here. Nneka Ogwumike has been the top player averaging 19.9 points while shooting 51 percent from the field. 

Mystics Betting Preview

The Mystics come into this game with a 12-13 record overall and they have been mostly a disappointment this season. On Sunday, the Mystics that again were beaten. The Mystics scored 73 points but the defense gave up 80 points to the Atlanta Dream and that was the difference. Washington was led by Brittney Sykes who finished with 25 points, two rebounds, and one assist. The Mystics are averaging 80.8 points while their defense is giving up 80.3 points per game. The offense is ranked 6th while the defense is ranked 3rd best in the league. Elena Delle Donne is expected to return to practice soon, but it doesn’t look like she will be ready to play in this game. 

Shane’s Free Pick

I really don’t trust either of these teams, and there are better games to bet on. Without Delle Donne, the Mystics have been inconsistent but this is a game where they are going to find success here. The Mystics defense has been the strong point all season, and they are going to lockdown again in this game. This will be an easy victory for the Mystics. Back the Mystics against the spread.
