Mystics Betting Preview

The Mystics come into this game with a 14-16 record overall but they sure look impressive in the last game. The Mystics put up 83 points against the Chicago Sky and that was enough for the seven point victory. Brittney Sykes had quite the game finishing with 30 points, six assists, and four rebounds. The Mystics are averaging 80.8 points while their defense is giving up 81.9 points per game The offense is ranked 6th best in the league while the defense is ranked 5th in the league. Elena Delle Donne is still working her way back from injury and although shes close, it doesn’t lool like it’s going to be this game that she returns. 

Fever Betting Preview

The Fever have been awful this season and they come into this game with an 8-23 record overall. The Fever faced off against the New York Liberty on Sunday, and the defense was awful. They gave up 100 points and they ended up losing by 11 points. Kelsey Mitchell was the top player for the Fever putting up 22 points. Erica Wheeler also had a strong game finishing with 21 points, four rebounds, and four assists. The Fever are averaging 80.4 points while their defense is giving up 85.2 points per game. The offense is ranked 8th while the defense is worst in the league. Mitchelll has been the best player for the Fever all season averaging 17.1 points while shooting 43 percent from the field. 

Shane’s Free Pick

The Fever’s offense looked better in the last game scoring 89 points, and I expect they can find offensive success again here. They however refuse to play any sort of defense and the Mystics are going to be just like the Liberty in the last game, going over 100 points. It wouldn’t be shocking if both teams went over 100 points here, and this game is going to go well over the total. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
