Free WNBA Pick:
The LA Sparks are just half a game back of the second seed in the WNBA playoffs which would earn them the double bye. With an offense and defense that ranks in the top 5 of the WNBA and the experience with veteran Candace Parker, the Sparks take care of business and win their third straight game. The Mystics are out of the playoff picture and although they won’t rollover for the Sparks, it is safe to assume the team that has something to play for will have a sense of urgency that cannot be matched. Final score prediction, Sparks win 86-73.
