The Washington Mystics look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Washington Mystics are averaging 74.6 points on 42.4 percent shooting and are allowing 70.8 points on 38.8 percent shooting. Emma Meesseman is averaging 15 points and 7.1 rebounds while Ivory Latta is averaging 13.6 points and 2.1 assists. Stefanie Dolson is the third double-digit scorer and Tierra Ruffin-Pratt is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Washington Mystics rely on their defense, as they’ve come away with 38 blocks and have allowed 72 or less points in five of their eight games. The Mystics are just 2-2 SU on their home court. Kia Vaughn is questionable with a concussion.
The Sky are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. win and 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win. The Mystics are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a ATS loss and 2-11-1 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
It's really, really hard to bet against the Chicago Sky, as Delle Donne is playing like the MVP of this league, and she's getting a lot of help. The Mystics don't have enough offensive firepower to keep up.
