The Washington Mystics need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Washington Mystics are averaging 74.7 points on 42.7 percent shooting and allowing 71.4 points on 40.3 percent shooting. Ivory Latta is averaging 12.6 points and two rebounds while Stefanie Dolson is averaging 12.2 points and 6.2 rebounds. Emma Meesseman is the third double-digit scorer and Tierra Ruffin-Pratt is dishing 2.2 assists. The Washington Mystics have scored under 70 points in four of their last eight games and lost five straight when that’s the case. The Mystics are looked into the fourth seed in the East. The Mystics are 11-5 SU on their home court and have won four of their last six.
The Dream are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Mystics are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a S.U. win and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games. The Dream are 8-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
While the Mystics are locked into a playoff spot, I'm sure they'd like to keep winning to build some confidence heading into their matchup with New York. Washington has been shaky as of late but has a shot to win three straight for the first time since July. I like the Mystics.
