The Dallas Wings and Washington Mystics meet Friday in WNBA action at the Entertainment and Sports Arena.

Arike Ogunbowale is averaging 18.5 points and 2.4 rebounds while Allisha Gray is averaging 10.9 points and 2.3 assists. Kayla Thornton is the third double-digit scorer and Isabelle Harrison is grabbing 5.7 rebounds.

The Dallas Wings are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.2 rebounds per game. The Dallas Wings have lost 10 of their last 12 road games.
The Washington Mystics look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 11 games. The Washington Mystics are averaging 89 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 77.1 points on 42.9 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 19.5 points and 8.2 rebounds while Kristi Toliver is averaging 13 points and six assists.

The Wings are 8-18 ATS in their last 26 vs. Eastern Conference, 7-17-1 ATS in their last 25 games following a ATS loss and 6-18 ATS in their last 24 road games. The Mystics are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 home games, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest and 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Washington and 7-1 in the last 8 meetings. The over is 14-6 in Mystics last 20 overall. The over is 5-0 in Wings last 5 overall.
This is a ton of chalk to lay, but the Wings are losing on the road this season by an average of 11.9 points and the Mystics are winning at home by an average of 18.1 points. In their last five games, the Wings are losing by an average of 10.2 points, while the Mystics are winning by an average of 14.6 points. There's better options on the card today and I hate massive numbers like this, but the numbers indicate this is going to be a comfortable win for the home team.
