Kayla McBride is averaging 14.8 points and 2.2 assists while Sophia Young-Malcolm is averaging 13.2 points and 5.1 rebounds.

The San Antonio Stars are coming off a win over the Atlanta Dream in which they shot 53.8 percent from the field and scored 102 points. The Stars may have found their groove a bit recently. The Stars are 6-3 SU on their home court, which includes six straight victories. Dearica Hamby is questionable with an ankle injury.
The Mystics are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Friday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Stars are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Friday games. The Mystics are 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings in San Antonio and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
This is the first meeting between these teams this season and the line is spot on. The Mystics are on aroll right now and possibly playing their best ball of the season. However, the Stars are starting to turn the corner as well and have won six straight at home. In a toss up game, I'm going to side with the home team.
