2011 Season WNBA Basketball Past Picks
August 16, 2011
Washington at New York
Tuesday 08/16 07:00 PM Eastern
3 units on New York -7.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Washington Mystics, winners of the WNBA East a year ago, are now sitting at the bottom with a dreadful 5-16 mark. They have covered six straight games, which creates line value on the other side as this one should be posted higher in my opinion. Then there is the revenge factor for the Liberty who lost a 1-point decision at Washington the last time these teams squared off. No one likes to lose, especially to a 5-16 team, so I expect the Liberty to bring a focused effort and play with purpose in this one. The Mystics enter with a dreadful 8-23-1 ATS mark off two days of rest, and this has been a house of horrors for the Mystics as they are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 visits to New York. Play on New York in this one.
