Balanced Attack for Washington

Washington saw five players score in double digits in their recent win over the Los Angeles Sparks. The top scorer came off the bench. Shatori Walker-Kimbrough led the way with 17 points in the game. She is averaging just 6.6 per game.

The top scorer for the Mystics this season has been Ariel Atkins, with 14.3 per game. Second on the team is Shakira Austin, with 11.7 per game. The Mystics are scoring 79.3 points per game. That is the third worst in all of the WNBA. Washington though is knocking down 10 three point shots per game, which is second in all of the league.

The Mystics will go on the road for two more games following this. On Saturday, they are in Minnesota, before finishing the trip in Indiana next Wednesday.

Dominating Performance for Las Vegas

The Aces, in their win on Tuesday saw their top scorer A’Ja Wilson go for 28 points and rip down 9 rebounds. The big story was the game Kelsey Plum had. She was on fire, going 11 for 20 from the field, and scoring a game high 34 points. Plum played 37 minutes in the game.

Wilson and Plum are averaging more than 45 points combined on the season. Add Jackie Young in there, and the Aces have three players combining for more than 62 per game. On the season, Las Vegas is the top scoring team in the league. The Aces are scoring 87.8 points per game.

The Aces will look to stay home with this home game, before a quick trip to Los Angeles to take on the Sparks on Friday. The Aces are back home on Sunday to take on the Wings, before a trio of road games.

Tight Game goes to Home Team

The Washington Mystics are going to keep this game close. Washington has been playing better basketball as of late. Las Vegas is playing really well, and will not lose. But, betting them to win by more than 15 seems crazy. Our final bet for this game on the 4th of July is the Washington Mystics +15.5 over the Las Vegas Aces. Enjoy the game and best of luck!
