The Atlanta Dream and Chicago Sky meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the Allstate Arena.

The Atlanta Dream look for a bounce back performance after losing their opener to the Dallas Wings on Sunday. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 78 points on 35.6 percent shooting and allowing 101 points on 48.4 percent shooting. Renee Montgomery is averaging 14 points and four assists while Tiffany Hayes is averaging 14 points and two rebounds. Brittney Sykes is the third double-digit scorer and Angel McCoughtry is grabbing three rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 27.8 percent from beyond the arc and 75 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream haven’t won a home game since June 13.

The Chicago Sky look to get off to an impressive 3-0 start to the season after beating Indiana and New York. The Chicago Sky are averaging 81 points on 48.4 percent shooting and allowing 70 points on 36.5 percent shooting. Allie Quigley is averaging 20.5 points and three rebounds while Diamond DeShields is averaging 12.5 points and four assists. Jamierra Faulkner is dishing four assists and Gabby Williams is grabbing four rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 39.3 percent from beyond the arc and 76.3 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 30 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.5 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have lost six of their last nine home games.

The Dream are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Wednesday games, 7-19 ATS in their last 26 road games and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Sky are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest. The Dream are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the over is 11-4 in the last 15 meetings.

The Atlanta Dream almost haven't won a road game in a full year and didn't look great in their season opener, as they didn't play a lick of defense and struggled from the field. The Chicago Sky are lighting it up offensively out of the gate and should be rather confident given the most recent win over a really good New York team. I like what I've seen from the Sky in two games and an early home game, I'll lay the bucket.

Chicago Sky -2.5
