Very often we see bad teams play above the line at some point of the season, and the before and after always are the ugliest. The Washington Mystics are off such a streak where they covered seven straight games. They have since returned to what they were before the streak and that is a team that has struggled, covering just one of their last four, making them just 5-14 ATS outside of the streak. Chicago has played their best basketball at home on the season where they are 3-1 ATS vs. a team that had a losing record at the time they faced them at home. The Sky are still in the hunt for a playoffs spot just two games behind Atlanta, so this is not a game to mail in. The Mystics are just 9-23-1 ATS on two days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last six vs. Chicago. Play Chicago for the money in this one.
