The Washington Mystics and New York Liberty face off on Friday in a WNBA showdown at the Barclays Center. 

Mystics Betting Preview

The Mystics come into this game with a 19-21 record overall but they finished the regular season with a strong victory. The Mystics put up 90 points against the New York Liberty, and that was enough for the two point victory. The Mystics had four different players that finished with at least 11 points. The top player for the Liberty was Brittney Sykes who finished with 20 points, seven rebounds, and six assists. The Mystics are averaging 80.5 points while their defense is giving up 80.9 points per game. The offense is ranked 8th in the league while the defense is ranked 5th. The Mystics are led by Elena Delle Donne and he is averaging 16.7 points while shooting 48.5 percent from the field. 

Liberty Betting Preview

The Liberty sit with a 32-8 record overall but they can’t feel great about how they looked in the last game. They were competitive, but the defense gave up 90 points and that led to the two point defeat. Sabrina Ionescu had a strong game putting up 20 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists. The Liberty are averaging 89.2 points while their defense is giving up 80.6 points per game. The offense is ranked 2nd in the league while the defense is ranked 4th. In this game if the defense is better, the Liberty will be in a good spot to take a 1-0 lead in the series.

Shane’s Free Pick

I don’t think the Mystics win this game, but this is way too many points. The Mystics scored 90 points on Sunday and they are going to find the offensive success again here. The Mystics will also slow down Breanna Stewart. The one way this game becomes a blowout is if Breanna Stewart puts up 30 or 40 points, and she isn’t going to do that here. Back the Mystics against the spread.

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