The Washington Mystics and Las Vegas Aces face off in their tenth game of the WNBA season inside the bubble at IMG Academy on Saturday.
The Washington Mystics got out to a fast start to the season, but they are really struggling coming into this game. Coming into this game the Mystics have lost six games in a row, and their offense has been a big issue this season. Two games ago against the Minnesota Lynx the offense only managed 48 points and that led to a big loss. In the last game the Mystics offense struggled again scoring 64 points while giving up 81 points to the Los Angeles Sparks.
On the season the Mystics are averaging 78.8 points while giving up 80.1 points per game. Aerial Powers is the best player for the Mystics averaging 16.3 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. In this game the offense is going to need to find a way to get going.
On the other side of this matchup is the Las Vegas Aces who are one of the best teams in the WNBA and coming into this game they have won six games in a row. In the last game the Las Vegas Aces scored 87 points and in the previous games they scored 98 points. On the season the Aces are averaging 88 points while giving up 80.1 points. The best player for the Aces this season has been A’Ja Wilson who is averaging 21.2 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. Angel McCoughtry has also found a lot of success averaging 15.9 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.
The Aces are the best team and the Mystics are going to struggle to score in this game. Look for the Aces to run up the score, the Mystics won’t be able to keep up, and they will have no issue winning this game and covering the spread.
