Chicago Sky vs. Washington Mystics
June 8, 2022 8:00 pm EDT

The Washington Mystics and Chicago Sky face off on Wednesday in a WNBA showdown at the Entertainment & Sports Center. 

When these two teams faced off on Sunday, it was the Sky that secured the 91-82 victory. The Sky outscored the Mystics 31-22 in the third quarter and that was the difference as Chicago won.

The Sky come into this game with a 7-3 record overall, and they have won three games in a row. In two of the three games, the Mystics defense has been the difference, but in the last game, it was the offense that led to the victory. Chicago is averaging 81.7 points, while their defense is giving up 76.3 points per game. The offense is ranked 4th in the league, while their defense is ranked 3rd. The Sky are 7th in the WNBA in terms of pace. The Sky uses mostly a balanced attack, with five different players averaging at least 11.1 points per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Mystics who sit with a 7-5 record overall, but they have lost two games in a row. Two games ago was probably the worst loss of the season against the New York Liberty. The Mystics only managed 70 points, and that led to the four-point defeat. Washington is averaging 79.3 points, while their defense is giving up 74.8 points per game. The offense is ranked 9th in the league, while their defense is ranked second in the league. The Mystics really want to slow the pace and are currently last in the league in terms of pace. Elena Delle Donne is still resting some games, but he is having a strong season, averaging 17.5 points while shooting 49.1 percent from the field. 

The Mystics want to play at a slower pace, but in the last game against the Sky, they put up 91 points on the way to the victory. In this game, I expect the Mystics are going to run up the score and the Sky are again to have no answer in this game. Back the Mystics against the spread.
