Atlanta at Washington
Thursday 09/01 07:00 PM Eastern
3 units on Washington +6 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Atlanta has been a money burner all season at 11-17-1 against the spread. It's a bad situational spot as well, playing their eighth road game over the last 10 games. The Dream is 2-6 ATS in their last eight vs. the Eastern Conference and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games playing on one day’s rest. They take on a Washington team that has had a bad season because forward Monique Currie tore the ACL in her left knee in January and was expected to miss the entire 2011 season. However, she had successful surgery and makes her return this game. They will receive a boost from Currie, who averaged 14.1 points and 4.8 rebounds per contest in 2010. Currie, a six-year veteran, also shot 44.6 percent from three-point range last season. Throw in the fact that the Mystics are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 vs. Eastern Conference and look for a big effort by the home team. Play Washington.
