The Los Angeles Sparks hope to take a comfortable 2-0 series lead and inch closer to another WNBA Final trip. The Los Angeles Sparks are averaging 83.5 points on 48 percent shooting and allowing 75.2 points on 43 percent shooting. Nneka Ogwumike is averaging 18.8 points and 7.7 rebounds while Candace Parker is averaging 16.9 points and 4.3 assists. Chelsea Gray is the third double-digit scorer and Odyssey Sims is dishing 3.5 assists. The Los Angeles Sparks are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 82.4 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Sparks are allowing 33.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.3 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Sparks have won eight straight home games.
 
The Mercury are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Sparks are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 home games, 8-17 ATS in their last 25 games playing on 1 days rest and 18-6 ATS in their last 24 games overall. The Mercury are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Los Angeles, 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
 
The Sparks have now beaten the Mercury in six straight meetings and the last three have been by double digits. Usually the lesser team has one chance to compete and either steal one outright or at least cover. That was game one for the Mercury, but they couldn't finish offensively in the fourth quarter. The Sparks are capable of playing even better basketball, especially at home, so I see another double-digit victory.
 
Nowgoal Pick: Los Angeles Sparks -9
