Coming into this game the Mystics have lost six of their last seven games, and the defense has been a big issue for this team. On the season, Washington is averaging 80.8 points per game while their defense is giving up 83.8 points per game. The bad news for this Mystics team is Tina Charles is dealing with an injury and wont be available for the next few weeks.
On the other side of this matchup is the Dallas Wings who sit with an 11-14 record overall which puts them in 5th place in the Western Conference. The Dallas Wings comes into this game having won two of their three games. On the season, Dallas is averaging 83.6 points per game while their defense is giving up 82.6 points per game.

Not having Charles is a big issue for the Mystics and the Dallas Wings are going to take advantage. Elena Delle Donne only had seven points in their last game, something that is a big problem, especially without Charles. The Mystics aren’t going to have enough offense to keep this game close. Back the Dallas Wings to cover the spread.
