The Mystics are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 Friday games, 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite and 0-7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Wings are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference. The under is 7-2 in Mystics last 9 overall. The under is 7-3 in Wings last 10 overall. The Mystics are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Dallas.
The Washington Mystics have fallen apart due to injuries and it's tough to lay chalk with a team that's having issues wining outright. However, the Dallas Wings are having issues as well, and while these teams are in similar positions, it's the Mystics who have shown more life offensively and have an easier time scoring. The Mystics should get the job done here, and if they don't, the problems are bigger than we thought.
