10:30 ET, Crypto.com Arena, Los Angeles, CA.

row: Srengenge (-1)
Money line: Mercury (+100), Sparks (-120)
Total: 166 points

Question: Chiney Ogwumike (feet), Rae Burrell (knees)

Discarded: Shey Peddy (back)

Fantasy should know: Sparks has a 2-5 record going into tonight’s game against Mercury after being beaten by the Las Vegas Aces on Saturday night, giving up 104 points. Nneka Ogwumike is the best fantasy choice for Los Angeles. In six of his seven games this season, he has scored 30 or more fantasies. Liz Cambage is another player who needs to start from a fantasy perspective. He averages 15.3 PPG, 5.7 RPG, 1.6 APG, 0.7 SPG and 2.0 BPG. While Cambage has averaged 24.4 MPG this season, he has played over 30 minutes only once. Both Brittney Sykes and Jordin Canada are also solid fantasy starters. If you’re looking for a streamer, consider Lexie Brown, who is available in 87.1% of the league. He has averaged 29.6 MPG and 18.3 fantasy points so far in 2022.

On the other side of the match was Mercury who had a 2-4 record that was also easily handled by the Aces in the last game. In terms of offensive rating, Mercury ranks sixth, but his defense remains a weakness. Phoenix is ​​last in the league with a defensive rating of 107.8. Skylar Diggins-Smith has been the best player on Mercury to date. He averages 17 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 4.5 APG, 1.0 SPG and 0.8 BPG at 33.5 MPG. Diggins-Smith has missed the last three games due to illness. He was not listed on the injury report to tonight’s game. Diana Taurasi has scored 29 or more fantasy points in four of six games. The soon-to-be 40-year-old guard has averaged 31.3 MPG. While Tina Charles continues to be a threat both are believed to be Mercury as well. He averages 14 PPG, 8.5 RPG, 2.2 APG and 0.7 SPG. Brianna Turner and Diamond DeShields are also strong choices. Shey Peddy is out tonight with a back injury. As a result, Sophie Cunningham will see more minutes. The fourth -year wing is available in 92% of the league for those in need of a streamer. – Eric Moody

Best bet: Sparks -1. All season, Mercury’s defense didn’t look good, and the team didn’t have Brittney Griner at the back of the defense. The Sparks offense should be successful against Phoenix, and Los Angeles should cover the spread. – Moody
