The Washington Mystics take on the Atlanta Dream. Our WNBA odds series has our Mystics Dream prediction, odds, and pick. Find out how to watch Mystics Dream.

The Washington Mystics' wait for a WNBA regular-season win in 2024 continues. The Mystics are 0-12 after losing narrowly to the New York Liberty on Sunday. The Mystics did cover the 14.5-point spread, but that really doesn't offer any comfort to Washington's players and coaches. Winning games is what matters to the people who compete on the court, and Washington hasn't done that in 12 tries. That's nearly one-third of the 40-game season schedule. The Mystics get asked about their winless record and when that first win will come after every game. Everyone can appreciate how tired this team is about dealing with a donut in the win column and not having that breakthrough. This will hang over the heads of everyone on the team until it can finally knock the door down. The next chance for Washington to win is in Atlanta against the Dream.

Why The Mystics Could Cover The Spread

The Mystics have not won a game straight up, but they have covered a number of spreads this season, including their most recent game in New York on Sunday. They covered the spread by 9.5 points, a fairly comfortable cover. It's not as though this team usually gets blown out; that's not really true. The Mystics are competitive but have a problem finishing games. They're a bad last-five-minutes team, but over the course of 40 minutes, they actually stay close more often than not. This is an 8.5-point spread. Given how badly the Mystics want to finally get that first win on the schedule, chances are they will keep this game close. Winning outright isn't likely, but covering the spread seems like a reasonable bet to make with this team.

Why The Dream Could Cover The Spread

The key point to keep in mind about the Mystics' five-point loss to the Liberty on Sunday as a 14.5-point underdog is that the Liberty played the Connecticut Sun on Saturday in a draining, emotional game. The Washington game on Sunday was just 24 hours after the end of the Connecticut game. New York was not in a position to play its very best. It's not as though the Mystics “solved” New York. No, the Liberty were simply enduring a rough, challenging back-to-back with minimal rest between games. Washington's performance there shouldn't be overvalued. The Dream haven't played since Saturday and are well-rested. They should be able to run Washington out of the building.

Final Mystics-Dream Prediction & Pick

The Mystics are eventually going to win a game, but maybe not here. At any rate, the desire of the Washington team to finally win a game might make this game closer than most people expect. Ultimately, you should stay away and wait for a live play.
