The Phoenix Mercury and Washington Mystics face off on Friday in a WNBA showdown at the Entertainment & Sports Center. 

Mercury Betting Preview

The Mercury have really been a big disappointment this season and they currently sit with a 2-6 record overall. In the last game against the Seattle Storm, the offense only managed 69 points against a terrible defense and that led to the defeat. Sophie Cunningham was the top player for Phoenix finishing with 21 points and four rebounds. The Mercury are averaging 79.1 points while their defense is giving up 86 points per game. The offense is ranked 9th while the defense is last in the WNBA. Brittney Griner has been the top player for the Mercury averaging 20.1 points while shooting 62.4 percent from the field and 25 percent from behind the three point line. 

Mystics Betting Preview

The Mystics sit with a 5-4 record overall but they are coming off a disappointing loss in the last game. The Mystics scored 66 points, but the defense gave up 87 points and that led to the 21 point defeat. The Mystics are averaging 74.8 points while their defense is giving up 74.88 points per game. The offense is ranked 12th in the league while the defense is ranked 1st. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 18.4 points while shooting 48.2 percent from the field and 42.3 percent from behind the three point line. The defense has been good, but the offense needs to find a way to get the offense going here. 

Shanes Free Pick

The Mercury only scored 69 points in the last game and now they have to face the Mystics that have the best defense in the league. The Mystics offense is also going to continue to struggle here, and that will be the difference as this game stays well under the total. This is my favorite play on the board. Back the under.
