Tough to make a pick here without knowing if Elena Delle Donne is going to play for the Washington Mystics. But, I'm going to assume she isn't given that the Mystics are four-point underdogs at home. The Connecticut Sun have been the most impressive team out of the gate, as they're lighting it up offensively while holding teams under 40 percent shooting. If Delle Donne isn't playing for Washington, the Sun will run away with this game. If she does, I kind of lean Washington and the points.
