On the other side of this matchup is the Mystics who sit with a 2-2 record overall and they are going to be playing in their second game in as many nights. On Friday night the Mystics faced off against the Dallas Wings. They only scored 11 points in the 4th quarter, but they still found a way to hang onto the victory. Elena Delle Donne had a strong game finishing with 25 points, three rebounds, and two assists. Shakira Austin also finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds.

The Mystics can’t let tired legs hurt them in this game.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Lynx defense is so bad, and even though the Mystics are on the second night of a back to back, they are going to have no issue running up the score. I do expect the Lynx’s offense will also find success in this game and that will lead to this game being higher scoring. Back the over to cash here.
