Point Spread: -3.00 | -105.00 Phoenix (Home)
The Phoenix Mercury are coming off their first win of the season, a 90-81 win over Minnesota. They host the LA Sparks Friday, and the home team is 8-1 straight up and 8-1 ATS in the last nine meetings between these teams. LA might be shorthanded, with three starters listed as questionable due to illness. With all three players out in their last game, they scored just 65 points on 38 percent shooting in a blowout loss to the Vegas Aces. The Sparks are 1-5 ATS in their last six games following an ATS loss.
