Mystics vs Fever Prediction and WNBA Odds: Recent Form
The Washington Mystics were one of the four teams to bow out after the regular-season games last season as the side failed to put up consistent performances in the regular season. They missed the playoff berth by a whisker to New York Liberty and they were back to the drawing-room.
Coming to this season, the Mystics were keen on getting the pre-season to a good start, but Dream had other plans. In their last game against Lynx, they achieved a 78-66 victory that would have done a lot of good to their confidence.
Looking at Indiana Fever’s recent exploits, it is abundantly clear that they are looking for a major revamp this season as the turnaround is inevitable this season. With just 6 losses in 32 appearances last season, the Indiana based club are desperate to avoid the last place this time.
In the preseason games, they started off with a narrow win against Sky but a loss against Wings meant that they still have some holes to plug going into the regular season.
