Free WNBA Pick:
Both Washington and Atlanta are in a battle with Dallas for the eighth and final playoff spot in the WNBA. The Mystics have the advantage with two games remaining - one on Saturday and the final on Sunday - and with two victories Washington would clinch the final spot. However the Mystics are shorthanded without three of their top players and playing back-to-back will come up short both straight up and against the spread versus Atlanta. Final Score Prediction, Atlanta Dream wins and covers ATS 88-81
