The Atlanta Dream look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 72.8 points on 39.3 percent shooting and are allowing 77.4 points on 43.1 percent shooting. Angel McCoughtry is averaging 20.5 points and 6.6 rebounds while Tiffany Hayes is averaging 12.2 points and 3.4 rebounds. Sancho Lyttle is the third double-digit scorer and Erika de Souza is grabbing 7.8 rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are getting healthy for the first time this season and look to make a strong run to gain ground in the standings. It can start with better three-point shooting, as the Dream are shooting just 28 percent from deep. The Dream are 3-3 SU on their home court this season.
The Storm are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Dream are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 vs. Western Conference and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games. The Storm are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Atlanta and 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings overall.
The Dream are getting healthy and slowly starting to play better. The Storm pretty much are what they are and have shown nothing on the road. I like Atlanta to get its first blowout and convicning victory of the season.
