The Washington Mystics are hosting the struggling Los Angeles Sparks on Sunday with a chance to gain a game on the Connecticut Sun in the Eastern Conference, as Connecticut plays the top seeded Chicago Sky. 

The Sparks have lost six straight games and have the worst offensive rating and second worst defensive rating in the WNBA over that stretch. 

Let’s jump into the odds for this game via WynnBET

Sparks vs. Mystics Prediction and Pick

This is a nightmare matchup for the struggling Sparks, as the Mystics have one of the top defenses in the WNBA. 

With the Sparks struggling for offense with Liz Cambage no longer with the team, they have lost games by 18, 10, seven, 29, three and two on this stretch. While the last two games have been encouraging, one of them was on a back-to-back and the other was against an average Atlanta Dream team. 

Laying 10-plus points is always tough, but I think this is a spot to do it with Washington, since the Sparks have been so bad as of late. 

Lean: Mystics -10 (-110)
