The Washington Mystics are allowing 30.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41 rebounds per game.
The Connecticut Sun look for a bounce back performance after losing their season opener to the Minnesota Lynx. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 69 points on 34.8 percent shooting and allowing 77 points on 41.8 percent shooting. Alyssa Thomas is averaging 20 points and eight rebounds while DeWanna Bonner is averaging 19 points and two assists.

The Mystics are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 vs. Eastern Conference, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Sun are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 Tuesday games, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference. The over is 23-9 in Mystics last 32 overall. The over is 4-1 in Sun last 5 overall. The Mystics are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Connecticut.
The Washington Mystics aren't the same team from last season that won the WNBA title, but they looked sharp offensively and were lighting it up against an experienced Fever squad. The Connecticut Sun couldn't do anything against a Lynx team that's not the same from past years. Based on the first game, I'll lay the chalk with the Mystics.
