Washington at Indiana

3 units on Washington +11 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
This is a sandwich spot for the big favorite in this one: First place Indiana has three straight games coming up against powerhouse teams, a back-to-back series with Atlanta, followed by a showdown with second place Connecticut. They just played two mediocre teams in San Antonio and LA, and played close games, winning by 2 then losing by 5. The Fever are 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games playing on two days rest. Washington comes to town, a club that is in last place, but playing very competitive basketball, losing by 1, 3, 7 and 2 points in four of their last six games, which doesn’t include a one-point win over New York as a dog. Washington is clearly undervalued on an 8-1 ATS run. This is nothing new, either, as the Mystics are 20-7-1 ATS in their last 28 games as a road underdog of 5.0-10.5. Play Washington.
