The Atlanta Dream need a win after splitting their last four games. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 70.3 points on 38.9 percent shooting and are allowing 76.5 points on 44.5 percent shooting. Angel McCoughtry is averaging 19.7 points and six rebounds while Sancho Lyttle is averaging 10 points and 7.3 rebounds. Erika de Souza is grabbing seven rebounds and Shoni Schimmel is dishing 2.7 assists. The Atlanta Dream continue to struggle on the defensive end, as they’re allowing 35.7 percent shooting from deep and has given up a combined 172 points in their last two games. It’s not going to get any easier for the Dream, who will once again be without their second leading scorer in Tiffany Hayes.
The Sky are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Friday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Dream are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 Friday games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Sky are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Atlanta and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings overall.
The Dream are struggling out of the gate, while the Sky have been an offensive machine that has yet to be stopped. The Sky have to be the pick here, especially with the Dream missing Hayes yet again.
