Sparks vs Dream WNBA prediction, odds, picks

The Los Angeles Sparks take on the Atlanta Dream. Our WNBA odds series includes our Sparks Dream prediction, odds and picks. Find out how to watch Sparks Dream.

The Los Angeles Sparks just keep getting better. They don’t always win games, but you can see this team is learning as they go. It is a young and unproven team, but the young players are finding their feet. The Sparks are going to be an uncomfortable opponent to play against – not a strong or superior team, but one that will make them difficult to beat.

The Sparks defeated the Las Vegas Aces a week ago after trailing by 15 points. That took some effort. Last Friday, the Sparks gained a double-digit lead over the Lynx on the road in Minnesota. At halftime they were still ahead by five points. They trailed by just one possession in the final minute, but fell just short against a very good team. The Sparks lost to the Lynx by 24 points earlier this season. By losing 81-76 in this rematch, Los Angeles improved by 19 points. They didn’t get the win, but the Sparks showed they are learning lessons from the tough times they faced earlier in the season. This evolution will undoubtedly bring more interruptions and periods of adversity, but the Sparks are clearly a much better team than they were two to three weeks ago. If the Sparks continue to grow, they will enter the 2025 season thinking they can become a legitimately good WNBA team. That process will not happen all at once, but it seems to have gotten off the ground.

The Atlanta Dream, unlike the Sparks, appear to be in decline. They were outclassed by the Indiana Fever a few days after being blown out at home by the Washington Mystics, a result that gave Washington its first win of the WNBA season. It’s hard to believe that The Dream defeated the Las Vegas Aces at home a few weeks ago. That team has not been seen in recent games. The Dream looked like a playoff team at the end of May. Now they are in the middle of a desperate battle for one of the last WNBA playoff spots. This is a game that Atlanta must win if it wants to consider itself playoff worthy. It’s only June 16, but some games during a long season are more important than most. This feels like such a game for the Dream.

Why the sparks could cover the spread

The Sparks are playing better. The Dream plays poorly. Despite playing much better basketball than the Dream in recent weeks, the Sparks get 4.5 points. This seems like a game where the spread must be 1 or 1.5 points, basically a pick-em. Either the Dream gets too much respect or the Sparks don’t get any respect at all.

Why the dream could cover the spread

The Dream has experienced a nightmare. Everyone on this team knows that the last few weeks have been unacceptable. You should see a fierce, strong, authoritative performance from Atlanta, and a level of play that will allow the Dream to cover the spread.

Final sparks dream prediction and choice

The Sparks are getting better, but they’re getting no respect at all in this spread. Take Los Angeles.
