Washington at Seattle

2 units on Washington +10 (-110) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The Washington Mystics and Seattle Storm have both taken their lumps on the injury front. The Mystics are a woeful 2-8 after winning their final six a year ago. They are now flying well under the radar as they are likely getting their top two players back for this one in Alana Beard and Crystal Langhorne. That should move a team mired in last place in the East, to a team much closer to the one that finished first in the East a year ago. As a result, the double-digit line here is simply an overlay, based on achievements without their top two players. The Mystics capable of getting to the line a lot and should get more freebies here if both star players return to the court, enough to hold them close here. Washington gets the call.
