Los Angeles at Tulsa
Friday 08/02 08:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Los Angeles -8.5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: loss
1 unit on Game Total UNDER 161 -105 (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: loss
This sure looks like a boat load of points here, but there is a boat load of talent differential between these teams. And with Los Angeles just 2.5 games behind Minnesota in the West, three in the loss column, this is one they won't let get away. The Sparks have won twice against Tulsa this season, the last was a convincing 16-point win right here in this same arena. Tulsa has won three of their last four games, but three of their last four have come against losing teams. Tulsa has suffered since moving from Detroit, and despite strong draft positions from poor seasons, they simply have not turned the corner with just six wins on the season. The Shock are 1-5 ATS following a loss in their last six, so make the play on LA. Tulsa often struggles on the offensive end, and have not even reached the 70-point mark in seven of their last 16 games. LA has held eight opponents under 70 this season, and will be in prime position to do so again to a not-so talented Tulsa offense. LA has also played to an 8-2 mark to the UNDER in their last 10 within the conference. Back the Sparks and take the UNDER.
