The Mystics are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 3 or more days rest, 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 road games and 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 Thursday games. The Wings are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Mystics are 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Dallas and the over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Dallas.

The Dallas Wings continue to be one of the more impressive teams over the last couple of weeks, and they're averaging 95.6 points and outscoring teams by 12.8 points in their last five games. The Wings have also covered six straight games as a favorite and are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games as a favorite. The Washington Mystics have the offense to hang with the Wings, but they're also shaky defensively and are just 3-3 ATS this season an underdog of seven or less points. The Wings and the small line is a really solid bet on Thursday's card.
