New York Liberty vs Washington Mystics Prediction

The New York Liberty should obviously be big favorites at home as they’re far and away the better team, and they could blow the doors off. However, the Liberty are 1-6 ATS on the season, and they’ve failed to cover 8 of their last 9 games as double-digit favorites. The Washington Mystics may be winless on the season, but they’ve managed to cover 3 games. The Mystics could get their boots smoked, as they don’t do anything well at either end of the floor. Still, the Liberty don’t cover big numbers dating back to last season. It’s Mystics or pass for me.
