Sparks vs Sky WNBA prediction, odds, picks

The Los Angeles Sparks take on the Chicago Sky. Our WNBA odds series includes our Sparks Sky prediction, odds and picks. Find out how to watch Sparks Sky.

The Los Angeles Sparks are in the same boat as the Indiana Fever. What No. 2 WNBA draft pick Cameron Brink is going through in Los Angeles is similar to what No. 1 pick Caitlin Clark is going through in Indiana. Brink and Clark are luminous talents destined for WNBA stardom, but this rookie season has been a rough ride and will continue to be. Brink and Clark won big in college, but now in the pros — as top picks on teams that finished near the bottom of the league a year ago — they’re going through the growing pains that are part of learning how to be. a professional.

Clark is a dazzling attacking talent with excellent shooting skills, but Cameron Brink is an elite defender who has already shown she can take on challenging games and countless defensive responsibilities. She can’t be left to do everything in defense of the Sparks. She will need much more help in attack, precisely because she is a reliable defender who will regularly put in a lot of effort on that side of the field.

Brink and the Sparks now meet the Chicago Sky and LSU’s Angel Reese in another WNBA rookie showcase. The Sparks and Sky are two of four WNBA teams with fewer than three wins at this point in the season. The Sparks and Sky are two of five WNBA teams with negative point differentials through the first two weeks of the season. It was harder for these teams to score than most in the WNBA. Finding consistent offense is a challenge that both LA and Chicago must solve.

Why the sparks could cover the spread

The Sparks are a strong defensive team. They don’t win much, but they compete well. They lost on the road to defending champion Las Vegas Aces by just seven points. They have a very good chance of covering the spread against a Chicago team that is 0-2 at home and therefore does not deserve the benefit of the doubt simply because it is playing on its home court. Chicago scored just 68 points in its most recent game against the Seattle Storm. If the Sparks keep Heaven to 68 here, they’ll cover.

Why the sky could cover the spread

The Sky have had a tough time of late, but will they lose three games in a row at home? Will they continue to struggle on offense? Are they going to lose to a Los Angeles team that has just two wins and is undeniably one of the worst teams in the WNBA? Chicago beat the New York Liberty on the road and showed how good it can be. The Sky’s ceiling is higher than the Sparks’ best.
