Here we get a 7-2 team as an underdog. We'll take it, backing the Shock on the moneyline. The Shock average 76.6 ppg on the road which is enough to keep up with LA, especially given the Sparks' porous defense. Detroit is 36-17 straight-up vs. winning teams the past three seasons. They are 8-2 vs. teams that hold opponents under 40% shooting as well. Over the past two seasons the Shock are 12-5 on the road vs. great offensive teams (those averaging 73+ ppg). Meanwhile, LA is just 10-21 vs. teams that are at .750+ over the past decade. They have also lost 10 of their last 12 games vs. teams that average over 76 points per game.
