The Mystics are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 1 days rest, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 vs. Eastern Conference and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Sky are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 Saturday games, 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 games as an underdog and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 7-2 in Mystics last 9 overall. The over is 34-15-3 in Sky last 52 overall. The Mystics are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Chicago and 11-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
The Washington Mystics don't look like they missed a beat from their WNBA title despite not being the same team from last season. However, the Chicago Sky are far from pushovers and are a team I said should be considered a title contender with all the production they had returning. So far so good for the Sky. I'll take the free buckets in a game the Sky could win outright.
