The Mystics are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog and 1-10-1 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Storm are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games as a favorite and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 9-4 in Mystics last 13 overall. The Mystics are 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Seattle and 8-3-1 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
The Washington Mystics smoked the Storm back in late July as big underdogs, but that's when they were playing good basketball. Now, the Mystics can't score, can't win and can't cover numbers. The Seattle Storm continue to be big favorites as they pile up these outright victories, and they're covering numbers in the process. Big line and something I don't love doing, but everything points to a comfortable win by the Storm.
