The Atlanta Dream need a win after losing four of their last five games. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 72.9 points on 39 percent shooting and are allowing 78.3 points on 42.9 percent shooting. Angel McCoughtry is averaging 20.8 points and 6.6 rebounds while Sancho Lyttle is averaging 10 points and 7.1 rebounds. Erika de Souza is grabbing 7.9 rebounds and Roneeka Hodges is dishing 1.6 assists. The Atlanta Dream are shooting just 27.3 percent from deep while allowing 35.8 percent shooting from downtown. The Dream just can’t get going on either side and have allowed 80-plus points in three of their last five games. Aneika Henry and Tiffany Hayes are expected to be out due to personal reasons.
The Mystics are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss and 2-10-1 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Dream are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Mystics are 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Atlanta and 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings overall.
The Atlanta Dream need this win to kind of stop the bleeding, as this was a team that had championship on its mind before the season started. The Mystics have found a groove offensively but are also allowing points. I like the Dream to bounce back with a big home victory.
