Mystics Betting Preview

The Mystics sit with a 17-20 record overall but they are coming off a disappointing loss on Sunday. The Mystics offense only managed 64 points and that led to the eight point defeat. Brittney Sykes was the top player for the Mystics putting up 14 points, three rebounds, and two assists. The Mystics are averaging 79.9 points while their defense is giving up 80.8 points per game. The offense is ranked 9th while the defense is ranked 5th. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 16.8 points while shooting 48.8 percent from the field and 37 percent from behind the three point line. 

Mercury Betting Preview

The Mercury sit with a 9-28 record overall and they are coming off another disappointing loss in the last game. At the hend of the first quarter against the Minnesota Lynx they were up 20-18, but that was the only time they really found success and they ended up losing 86-73. The Mercury are averaging 76.5 points while their defense is giving up 83.8 points per game. The offense is ranked 12th in the league while the defense is ranked 7th. Brittney Griner is averaging 17.8 points while shooting 56.3 percent from the field.

Shane’s Free Pick

This is going to be a low scoring. The Mystics offense only managed 64 points in the last game and they are going to really struggle here. I also really dont’ trust the Mercury’s offense and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. Both of offenses are going to finish under 70 points and the under is going to cash here. This is one of my favorite plays on the entire board for Tuesday. 

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