The Mystics are 13-6-1 ATS in their last 20 vs. Eastern Conference, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games. The Fever are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Sunday games, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games playing on 1 days rest. The under is 4-0 in Mystics last 4 overall. The over is 5-2-1 in Fever last 8 overall. The Mystics are 8-3-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Indiana and 4-1-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

The Washington Mystics will b eager for a bounce back performance after an embracing loss to the Liberty, and they've been solid so far on the year up to that point. The Indiana Fever have been solid in the underdog role, but they've had zero success against the Mystics over the years and have one of the worst defenses in the league. I have no choice but to lay the reasonable number with the Mystics.
