Washington Mystics at Connecticut Sun 5/21/23 - WNBA Picks & Predictions

The Washington Mystics head into Mohegan Sun Arena to battle the Sun of Connecticut on Sunday afternoon. Both the Mystics and the Sun won their respective opening games putting them at 1-0 a piece. The Sun won 2 out of the 3 head-to-head contests against the Mystics last season, with one of those wins coming in overtime.

The Connecticut Sun are looking to get back to the Championship after losing to the Aces last season in 4. They started with a 9-point win over the Indiana Fever, 70-61. Former Auburn Tiger Dewanna Bonner led the way with 19 points and 7 boards. Forward Alyssa Thomas also chipped in a double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds. The deadly duo of Bonner and Thomas will be a force to reckon with all season.

The Washington Mystics looked impressive in their opener against the New York Liberty. Ariel Atkins and Natasha Cloud both went for 14 in route to a Mystics win 80-64. The win was also the first for new Head Coach Eric Thibault. The lady Mystics shot 45.7% from the floor, and an eye-popping 90.9% from the charity stripe.

This should be an interesting contest as it puts the #1 ranked Sun defense against the #2 ranked Mystics offense. Connecticut is only giving up 61 points per contest, while the Washington offense is putting up 80 per game. Washington is also almost 16 percentage points better at the foul line than Connecticut.

The Mystics turned over the Liberty a whopping 22 times in their season debut. The Liberty added superstar Breanna Stewart, and they were still beat by Washington on their home floor. On the other side of the coin, the Sun turned the ball over 18 times in their win over the Fever. They also only shot 31.8% in that win. The Mystics remain undefeated on the season as they pick up their second win. Final Score Prediction, the Washington Mystics win and cover against the spread, 74-68.
