Las Vegas Aces at Los Angeles Sparks, 9 pm Eastern
The Pick: Las Vegas -7 (-113), bet $8.43 to win $7.50
I gave Liz Cambage and the Los Angeles Sparks too much credit back on May 23, when I thought she/they’d be psyched to seek revenge on her former team and then watched as that former team blew L.A. out by 28 points. The fact of the matter is, Las Vegas is the best team in the WNBA right now - certainly the best in the Western Conference - while the Sparks are mediocre. Los Angeles has the worst defensive rating in the league, and Las Vegas has the best offensive rating. So, okay. The Aces turn the ball over the least in the league, with the best assist/TO ratio. So, okay. The Sparks give up the most free throws in the WNBA. So, okay. Finally, Las Vegas leads the league in three-point percentage. So, yeah. Also, I think Las Vegas will not be averse to beating Cambage handily one more time. Their major mission is to win the championship; a minor goal is to remind their former center what she left behind.
