The Chicago Sky are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they've been the best team in the league, and they're at home. However, the Mystics are going to get respect from oddsmakers sooner or later. All the Washington Mystics have been doing lately is won and cover numbers, and yet they're underdogs a lot. Arguably the best defensive team in the league, it's hard to turn down the Mystics in the underdog role. The Sky are great, but the Mystics hold their own most nights. Give me the road dog.
