Sparks Betting Preview

The Sparks comes into this game with a 16-21 record overall but they are coming off a victory in the last game. The Sparks defense gave up only 64 points to the Washington Mystics, and that was enough for the victory. Layshia Clarendon finished with 15 points, five rebounds, and three assists. The Sparks are averaging 78.4 points while their defense is giving up 79.6 points per game. The offense is ranked 11th in the league while the defense is ranked 2nd. In the last game the defense was elite and they are going to need the defense to lockdown here if they want to secure the win.

Shane’s Free Pick

The Sun’s offense really struggled in the last game and the Sparks are a very good defensive team.The Sparks gave up only 64 points in the last game and they are going to lockdown again in this game. Look for the Sparks defense to step up again, even against a good team and that is going to be the difference here as the Sparks are going to get the job done. Back the Sparks against the spread.
