Will update with trends once they're released.
I'm not running to the window to bet either of these teams, but the Washington Mystics are the better team that had higher expectations heading into this season if forced to pick. Neither team plays a lick of defense, but the Mystics are slightly more trustworthy on the offensive end and they're coming off one of their better recent performances with an upset win over a solid Chicago Sky team. The Dallas Wings won the previous meeting against the Mystics in overtime, but they've given up 80-plus points in eight of their last nine games, making it tough to back them in spots they could possibly win.
I'll take my chances with the Mystics in this near pick em, as if they can't win this game, they're in trouble down the home stretch.
