The Mystics are a bad team and they are running into a team that averages nearly 88 points per game at home here in the Sparks. Los Angeles is a .500 team thanks to a defense that gives up 82 per game (85.4 over their last five). The Sparks live and die by the three. They hoist up 19 per game (20 per game at home) while allowing 21 long-range shots per game at home. Washington is 26-14 OVER the past three seasons vs. teams that shoot 16+ three-pointers per game. They are also 45-23 to the OVER on the road with a total set in the 140s. Since last season, LA is 19-9 OVER following an ATS loss. Take the OVER here.
