The Mystics are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games, 4-10 ATS in their last 14 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest. The Storm are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Washington, 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Seattle Storm haven't been the same team on the road as they are at home, and they've cooled off big time from a hot start. The Washington Mystics have caught fire at home recently and have the offense to shoot the Storm out of the building. Also, this game is extremely early, especially for a team that plays on the West Coast. Washington should win this game and cover the reasonable number.
