The Washington Mystics look for their first win after losing to the Liberty on Saturday. The Washington Mystics are averaging 76 points on 35.8 percent shooting and allowing 87 points on 47.8 percent shooting. Tayler Hill is averaging 20 points and eight rebounds while Bria Hartley is averaging 17 points and three assists. Stefanie Dolson is grabbing six rebounds and Natasha Cloud is dishing four assists.

The Wings are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games. The Mystics are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 vs. Western Conference and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss. The Wings are 1-4-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
I'm not sure I trust the Wings on the road with a banged up and questionable Diggins. The Mystics have had a lot of time to prepare for this game after losing to a loaded and physical New York club. I like Washington at home.
