Mystics vs Storm Betting Pick
This game will be played at Climate Pledge Arena at 10:00 PM ET on Thursday, June 23, 2022.
The Seattle Storm and Washington Mystics both have championship aspirations this season, making their Thursday night meeting in the WNBA a must-watch affair. Two of the top players in the league in Breanna Stewart and Elena Delle Donne will lead their teams into this important battle, but only one will come out on top. In our WNBA picks for Thursday, we examine Mystics vs Storm in a significant contest in the W.
Why Bet The Mystics:
✅ The Washington Mystics have Elena Delle Donne back for this game, after she sat out the team’s Tuesday night contest with the Los Angeles Sparks. Washington nearly beat the Sparks without her, despite a slow start, and should be very competitive with a Seattle team that is compromised in their front court in this matchup.
✅ Mercedes Russell is the member of the Seattle frontcourt that is not available for this game. She is dealing with a series of headaches and is being evaluated at this time. Without her, the Storm’s second unit lacks a true big and the Mystics should be more effective on the glass and at the rim as a result.
✅ Seattle is just 6-10 against the spread this season, while the Mystics are 11-8 against the number on the year. While Seattle does have home court advantage for this game, they have not been proficient at covering the spread as a favorite, and they will not have an easy time doing so again here against a fellow playoff contender.
The Washington Mystics currently sit in fifth place in the WNBA standings, as they have been treading water of late. They are 5-5 in their last 10 games, though some context is required behind that number as Elena Delle Donne has been rested on several occasions during that stretch. Here, Delle Donne is back in the lineup as the Mystics look to make a statement on the road against a fellow contender in Seattle.
For the Mystics, playing with pace is a priority, but it has to be done on their terms against the Storm. Jewell Loyd and Breanna Stewart and more than comfortable leading the Storm in a fast-paced affair, and the Mystics must be judicious when trying to speed things up in this contest. Look for them to try and change their approach from a pace perspective throughout this game, simply to keep the Storm out of a rhythm.
The Seattle Storm have climbed into the top-four in the WNBA standings, winning seven of their last 10 games to get to 10-6 on the season. They have overcome a number of injuries and illnesses to get mostly healthy, which has resulted in some spectacular play on the court. But they are still not at 100% from a health perspective, which could hurt them in this contest.
With Mercedes Russell out for this game, Ezi Magbegor faces a lot more pressure on the defensive end of the floor for Seattle. Not only does she need to play well defensively against the likes of Elena Delle Donne and the impressive rookie Shakira Austin. She also has to stay out of foul trouble, as Russell is not there to back her up if she picks up some early calls against her.
