The Atlanta Dream need a win here to snap a six-game losing streak. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 69.2 points on 36.5 percent shooting and allowing 77.7 points on 41 percent shooting. Tiffany Hayes is averaging 13.4 points and 3.1 rebounds while Brittney Sykes is averaging 11.1 points and 2.7 assists.

The Sky are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 3 or more days rest, 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Dream are 9-0 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 2 days rest, 17-8 ATS in their last 25 games following a ATS win and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games. The Sky are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Atlanta and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Atlanta. The under is 5-1-1 in Dream last 7 overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Sky last 5 overall.

There's just no reason to get behind the Dream in their current form, as they're getting beat like a drum. Give me the Sky and the reasonable chalk. 

Pick:
Chicago Sky -4
