Shane’s Free Pick

The Mercury are going to find success here. Griner is back with the team, and she’s going to have a big game. Taurasi is also having a strong season, especially as of late and she’s going to be good again here. The Mystics defense struggled in the last game, and the Mercury’s offense is going to find success here. Back the Mercury against the spread.
