Nneka Ogwumike is having a big season averaging 19.8 points while shooting 50.8 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from behind the three point line. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The Dream’s offense struggled in the last game but now they get to face off against a Sparks team has struggled to defend this season. They have also really struggled to slowdown the Dream and that is going to be the difference here as Atlanta is going to have no issue getting the job done. The Sparks just aren’t going to be keeping here. Back the Dream against the spread. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
