The Washington Mystics continue to lose and fail to cover numbers, and they're usually big underdogs in every game these days.

The Los Angeles Sparks are flexing their muscle down the home stretch, have covered four straight and beat the Mystics by 17 points in the last meeting. Give me the Sparks in a comfortable victory.
