The one thing to take notice of in the WNBA is how the very good teams have played at home. Atlanta and Chicago in the East are a combined 12-0, while in the West, Minnesota and LA are a combined 10-0. This is a top-level game, and with Minnesota just 2-2 on the road, and LA 5-4 overall, but unbeaten at home, the Sparks can ill afford a loss here at home if they want to contend, and they have the talent to do so. They are also playing with some major revenge for a loss at Minnesota by 24 points just two games back. These teams have exchanged blowouts on their home court, and both games were physical and defensive. I don't see that changing for the third meeting, as both of those contests fell well shy of the total. The Lynx may be dominating at home, but they are just 1-5 ATS in their last six on the road, and they have also played 5-1 to the UNDER in their last six, as well as 6-1-1 to the UNDER in their last eight on three days or more rest. The Sparks are getting it done at home where they are 12-4-1 ATS in their last 17, and the UNDER has been a perfect 4-0 in their last four on home hardwood. The Lynx are a woeful 5-17 ATS in their last 22 here. Take LA and the UNDER.
