Los Angeles Sparks vs Washington Mystics Prediction

I’m no running to the window to back either the Sparks or Mystics and this rough start. With that said, the Los Angeles Sparks are at home, and they’ve shown more life offensively. The Mystics have had issues at both ends of the floor and their offense has been rough to say the least. The Sparks have won 5 of their last 8 games against the Mystics, and they usually play their best ball at home. If the Sparks are going to win a game any time soon, it would be here. If not, Los Angeles is in serious trouble. I’ll lay the reasonable number with the Sparks at home.
