The Atlanta Dream and Chicago Sky meet Wednesday afternoon at the Allstate Arena.
The Atlanta Dream look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 70 points on 38.3 percent shooting and are allowing 75.6 points on 43.1 percent shooting. Angel McCoughtry is averaging 19.1 points and 6.1 rebounds while Sancho Lyttle is averaging 9.4 points and 6.8 rebounds. Erika de Souza is grabbing 7.8 rebounds and Shoni Schimmel is dishing 2.8 assists. The Atlanta Dream are shooting just 26.6 percent from deep and are clearly missing their second-leading scorer in Tiffany Hayes. The Dream could also be better defensively, as they’ve allowed 73 or more points in four straight games. The Dream are 1-3 SU on the road. DeLisha Milton-Jones is questionable with a foot injury.

The Chicago Sky look for a win to get one game above .500. The Chicago Sky are averaging 86.5 points on 47.1 percent shooting and are allowing 78.8 points on 40 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 29.3 points and nine rebounds while Cappie Pondexter is averaging 16.7 points and 4.5 rebounds. Courtney Vandersloot is the third double-digit scorer and Allie Quigley is dishing three assists. The Chicago Sky are the best offensive team in the league, as they’re shooting 29 percent from deep and have Delle Donne, who has combined for 78 points in her last three games. The issue with the Sky is that they’re giving those points back up, allowing 72 or more points in five of their six games. This is just the Sky’s second home game of the season.
The Dream are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 2 days rest and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Sky are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a S.U. win. The Dream are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
Both teams have been solid offensively out of the gate, but they've also both had issues at times on the defensive end, especially the Sky. I like the over in this matchup.
