The Washington Mystics are the better team, have a clear edge defensively, and they should be favored at home. However, this is a lot of points to lay with the Phoenix Mercury, a talented veteran team that is playing their best ball of the season with three straight wins and that includes an overtime victory on Sunday against these Mystics. This line doesn't make sense to me. Give me the Mercury and the free points.
