WNBA Thursday: Sizzling O'Sullivan picks Los Angeles Sparks at Atlanta Dream, likes L.A. playoff motivation

Los Angeles Sparks at Atlanta Dream, 7 pm EDT.

I’m 14-6 with my last 20 picks, and 31-13 since August 31st…good momentum heading into the WNBA playoffs. Let’s, keep, it, going…

Seattle O’Sullivan so far: 127-97-1

Los Angeles Sparks at Atlanta Dream, 7 pm Eastern

The Pick: Los Angeles -135

This is the “immovable object” of the “home dog” against the “irresistible force” of the “playing for the playoffs.” Los Angeles is one game out of the last playoff spot with two games left to play. Atlanta is playing at home. As much as I don’t like how they play, I’m taking the Sparks tonight. They’ve just got too much to play for, they’ve had four days of rest, and they’re coming off a huge, confidence-building blowout of Seattle on Sunday. The Dream just doesn’t have as much motivation, though I expect it’ll be a tight game, hence the giving away of value with the moneyline.
