The Washington Mystics are averaging 80.9 points on 42.4 percent shooting and allowing 82.4 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Tayler Hill is averaging 15.7 points and 2.8 assists while Emma Meesseman is averaging 15.1 points and 5.6 rebounds. Ivory Latta is dishing 1.9 assists and Stefanie Dolson is grabbing 4.6 rebounds.

The Fever are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference. The Mystics are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference. The Fever are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
This is a tough game to cap considering Washington has been left for dead in the second half and the Fever play their best ball on the road. However, the Mystics have shown signs of life lately and have beaten the Fever in five of the last seven meetings. So, I'll take the home team in a toss-up game.
