2 units on Game Total OVER 148.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The LA Sparks had some distant hopes of sneaking into the playoffs, but those hopes have been dashed, and with it we have seen the defense letting down. The Sparks allowed 248 points in their previous three games or 82.7 points per game while in their three games prior to that just 204, or 68 ppg. It is clear that the intensity is gone as they play out the string. The Chicago Sky has not played a heck of a lot of defense themselves down the stretch as they have allowed 70 points or more to eight of the last nine teams they have faced. They have also reached the 70-point mark themselves in seven of their last nine, putting this number in jeopardy of going OVER. The Sky is trending OVER following a loss at 5-1 to the OVER in their last six, while the Sparks have played 11-3-1 to the OVER in their last 15 vs. the East. This one goes OVER the total.
