Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Mystics and Indiana Fever meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Washington Mystics look to stay hot while building on their five-game winning streak. The Washington Mystics are averaging 85.4 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 82.3 points on 45 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 21 points and 7.2 rebounds while Kristi Toliver is averaging 13.7 points and 4.5 assists. Ariel Atkins is the third double-digit scorer and LaToya Sanders is grabbing 6.2 rebounds. The Washington Mystics are shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc and 85.8 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Mystics are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.5 rebounds per game. The Washington Mystics have won four of their last five road games.

The Indiana Fever look to play spoiler at this point after losing 10 of their last 13 games. The Indiana Fever are averaging 75.2 points on 40.5 percent shooting and allowing 84.8 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Candice Dupree is averaging 13.6 points and 6.4 rebounds while Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 13 points and 2.6 assists. Cappie Pondexter is the third double-digit scorer and Natalie Achonwa is gabbing 6.7 rebounds. The Indiana Fever are shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc and 80.9 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Fever are allowing 34.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.5 rebounds per game. The Indiana Fever have lost four of their last five home games.

The Mystics are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Fever are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 4-14 ATS in their last 18 games overall. The Mystics are 7-2-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Indiana, 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings and the over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.

The Washington Mystics have won nine of the last 10 meetings against the Indiana Fever and majority of those games weren't close. The Fever are head and shoulders the worse team in the league and haven't provided much value betting wise, as they consistently come up short with these big numbers. The Washington Mystics are outscoring teams by 11.6 points in their last five games and have scored at least 93 points in each of their last three games. It's hard not to predict a Washington blowout here.

Pick:
Washington Mystics -10.5
