WNBA Thursday: O'Sullivan picks Connecticut Sun at Los Angeles Sparks – does not expect Sparks to fly
Man, I really called it on those Minnesota Lynx, huh? (eye roll) And I needed three made free throws from the Phoenix Mercury's Shey Peddy with 3.8 seconds left to save me from an 0-4 night. Oof.
Shake it off, shake it off.
Seattle O’Sullivan so far: 115-96-1
Connecticut Sun at Los Angeles Sparks, 10:30 pm EDT
The Pick: Connecticut -475, Connecticut -9.5 (-110)
This spread opened at 8 and quickly jumped up to 9.5, and I’m fine with that. Connecticut has won ten in a row, and 14 out of 15. The Sun are also 7-2-1 against the spread in their last ten. They need to keep winning to ensure they get the top seed in the playoffs. Los Angeles is a mere half-game out of the eighth spot, true. But Sparks leader Kristi Tolliver is out with a hand injury. Honestly, I think the Sun still remember only beating the Sparks by four on August 26. They might not accomplish it, but right now Connecticut is on a mission. Moneyline for dinner, cover the spread for dessert. Let’s shake yesterday off, shall we?
