The Washington Mystics are playing the better basketball at the moment, and they've had covering success as well during this recent winning streak. The Phoenix Mercury look like they're starting to run out of gas with everything that's happened this season, and their double overtime loss to the Lynx likely doesn't help matters. I still have a soft spot for this talented, experienced Mercury squad, but things could soon unravel for them. I have no choice but to lay the bucket with the Mystics on the road.
