Randy’s Free Pick
The Connecticut Sun are likely going to be favored at home, and they're the more complete team on paper. However, the Washington Mystics looked great in their season opener at both ends of the floor and smoked a Liberty team with expectations. It's just one game, but you have to be encouraged by what you saw from the Mystics first game. Assuming we're getting points, give me the Mystics.
