Shane’s Free Pick

Even though the Sun are coming off the loss, they are going to bounce back in a big way here. The Sun’s defense is ranked 1st in the league and they are going to lockdown the Sparks. The Sparks are going to struggle to get to even 70 points and that will be the difference in this game. Back the Sun to cover the spread here.
