The Dallas Wings look to build on their solid three-game winning streak. The Dallas Wings are averaging 86 points on 40.8 percent shooting and allowing 87.8 points on 47.8 percent shooting. Odyssey Sims is averaging 16.1 points and 4.2 assists while Karima Christmas is averaging 13.8 points and six rebounds.

The Stars are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 18-7-3 ATS in their last 28 Thursday games. The Wings are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Stars are 10-3-1 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Dallas and 2-7-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall.
I like the direction the Dallas Wings are moving, as they're now fully healthy for the first time this season with Johnson and Diggins now back on the court. The Stars are still the worst team in the WNBA and don't have the firepower to hang with Dallas. Give me the Wings by double digits.
