The Washington Mystics look to improve to 3-1 after losing to the Atlanta Dream on Friday. The Washington Mystics are averaging 67 points on 36.6 percent shooting and are allowing 64.7 points on 36.3 percent shooting. Emma Meesseman is averaging 15 points and 8.3 rebounds while Ivory Lattais averaging 10 points and three rebounds. Stefanie Dolson is grabbing 6.3 rebounds and Kara Lawson is dishing 3.3 assists. The Washington Mystics are shooting just 26.8 percent from deep and have just two double-digit scorers. The Mystics are playing solid defense out of the gate but need more consistency on the offensive end in order to take that next step this season. Kia Vaughn is questionable with a knee injury.

The New York Liberty look to remain unbeaten on their home court and get off to a 4-1 start. The New York Liberty are averaging 74.5 points on 43.4 percent shooting and are allowing 69 points on 34.8 percent shooting. Tina Charles is averaging 18.8 points and 8.8 rebounds while Tanisha Wright is averaging 10.5 points and 3.5 assists. Swin Cash is dishing 2.3 assists and Brittany Boyd is grabbing 3.3 rebounds. The New York Liberty are playing terrific defense, which includes holding the Phoenix Mercury to 29.2 percent shooting in their last game. The Liberty also have six players averaging at least 7.5 points. The Liberty have to be thrilled with this start and have won four straight games on their home court.
The Mystics are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games and 0-8-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Liberty are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest. The Mystics are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in New York.
The Liberty have been solid on their home court as of late and have beaten some decent comp in back-to-back games. I like the Liberty to stay hot and cover the bucket spread.
