Seattle at Washington
Wednesday 09/12 08:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Washington -215 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.47) RESULT: LOSS
Washington is facing elimination, but the Storm was also up 2-0 against Phoenix and then lost two road games to take it back to Seattle. The Mystics almost pulled out a win Game 2 as they held Seattle to 41.9 percent from the field, but Washington failed to make a single three-pointer in 16 attempts, which turned out to be the difference. Elena Delle Donne bounced back from an off game in Game 1 and scored 17 points and Ariel Atkins and Kristi Toliver added 15 points apiece. This game will be played at EagleBank Arena on the George Mason campus because Capital One Arena is unavailable. The Mystics forced 15 turnovers in Game 3 and will need to keep the pressure on in this matchup. The Mystics are the better defensive team, allowing 74.4 points per game and a .431 field goal percentage compared to 81.2 and 44.9 for the Storm. Take the Washington Mystics to stay alive, so play them on the moneyline.
