The Los Angeles Sparks will look to win out their remaining games of the WNBA season as they try to catch the Minnesota Lynx for the top overall seed in the playoffs. Right now, Los Angeles is just a game back and still has a shot at first place, giving them home court advantage through the postseason. The Atlanta Dream are all but eliminated from the playoff chase, as a Seattle Storm win tonight means they're out of it. Here's the latest Dream vs. Sparks game preview including game time, channels, live streaming options, and matchup odds.

WNBA game preview

Besides the NY Liberty, the defending champion Los Angeles Sparks have been the hottest team in the WNBA lately. They've won five-straight games and have an 8-2 record over their last 10 games. With a 24-8 record, they are just one game back from Minnesota whom they have beaten several times this season. The team has a 14-1 record at home which bodes well for them as they host tonight's game against a subpar Atlanta team that's almost eliminated from playoff contention.

The Atlanta Dream have won two-straight games despite going 4-6 over their last 10. In their most recent outing, Atlanta recorded a 79-74 win over the Indiana Fever in a battle of teams near the bottom of the standings.

As of this report, Atlanta still has an outside shot of taking the final WNBA Playoff spot, but if Seattle wins their earlier game against the Mystics, then Atlanta will be eliminated.

Odds makers have the Los Angeles Sparks as large favorites at home tonight. For the point spread, LA is favored to win by 13 points. On the moneyline, the Sparks are -1000 at several sportsbooks.

The visiting Atlanta Dream are +650 underdogs at multiple books, while the over/under points total has 158 points as the number for bettors to consider. Los Angeles has only been 3-7 against the Atlanta Dream in their last 10 meetings but won their last encounter on June 30th with an 85-76 final score.
