The Atlanta Dream look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 76.3 points on 40.6 percent shooting and allowing 81.1 points on 44 percent shooting. Angel McCoughtry is averaging 19.8 points and 5.4 rebounds while Tiffany Hayes is averaging 12.1 points and 1.8 assists. Sancho Lyttle is grabbing 8.2 rebounds and Shoni Schimmel is dishing 3.3 assists. The Atlanta Dream have scored 90 or more points in four of their last seven games and have won six of their last 10 when scoring 80 or more points. The Dream are 9-7 SU on their home court and have won four of their last five. This is the Dream’s last home game of the season.
The Fever are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Friday games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Dream are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. win and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Atlanta.
I expect the Dream to come out swinging in their last home game of the season. The Fever have already clinched a playoff spot and have been shaky all year on the road. In a toss-up game, give me the home squad that has nothing to lose.
