The Washington Mystics look for a win after splitting their last six games.

Elena Delle Donne is averaging 16.1 points and 8.2 rebounds while Emma Meesseman is averaging 13.6 points and 2.4 assists.

The Dream are 40-19-1 ATS in their last 60 games playing on 1 days rest, 13-6 ATS in their last 19 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Mystics are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Dream are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Washington and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The over is 4-0 in Mystics last 4 overall. The under is 4-1 in Dream last 5 Sunday games.
The Washington Mystics have played their best ball by far at home, but they've been shaky at best defensively as of late and are only winning their last five games by an average of 1.2 points. The Atlanta Dream are piling up the losses, but they're only losing their last five games by an average of five points and are holding teams under 40 percent shooting. This is too many points for me to leave off the table. Give me the Dream and the free buckets.
