The Tulsa Shock have been an uncompetitive team since moving from Detroit. Despite top of the first round draft position for several years now, the Shock have failed to turn the corner, and enter this game with just 10 wins and 20 losses. The LA Sparks' history of struggles vs. Tulsa are well documented, as they have covered just 1 of the last 16 meetings. That one however came on this court, this season, and the Sparks are a 21-10 team that still has an outside chance of surpassing Minnesota for the top spot in the West, as they play them next. A win here and against the Lynx will make for an interesting finish in the West. Los Angeles is not in a lay down position by any means, having lost two straight for just the third time all season. The first two times they went on to win their next game by 24 points per game, and a full effort is expected here tonight. The Sparks have been packing their defense on the road where they are 7-1 to the UNDER in their last eight. Tulsa has been tougher on the defensive end after an ATS win, at 6-1 in their last seven. Look for a lower-scoring game with a pair of focused teams. But in the end the Sparks get it done big. Play on LA and the UNDER.
