The Sky are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Mystics are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games. The under is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings.
Both of these teams have struggled out of the gate, but the Washington Mystics have looked slightly more impressive and are due for a solid showing on their home court. I have little faith in the Sky and their lack of defense, especially on the road. Give me the home team and free bucket.
