The Connecticut Sun and Atlanta Dream meet Friday in WNBA action at the McCamish Pavilion.

The Connecticut Sun need a strong road victory here in order to snap a three-game losing streak. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 90.5 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 82 points on 42.4 percent shooting. Chiney Ogwumike is averaging 15.3 points and 7.8 rebounds while Jasmine Thomas is averaging 14.9 points and 4.9 assists. Courtney Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Alyssa Thomas is grabbing 9.9 rebounds. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 33.5 percent from beyond the arc and 74 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.6 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have split their last six road games.

The Atlanta Dream could use a victory here in order to get a game above a .500 record. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 73.7 points on 37.9 percent shooting and allowing 77.7 points on 40.6 percent shooting. Angel McCoughtry is averaging 18 points and 2.7 assists while Tiffany Hayes is averaging 17.9 points and 3.4 rebounds. Renee Montgomery is dishing 2.8 assists and Jessica Breland is grabbing 8.9 rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 25.5 percent from beyond the arc and 75.6 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 29.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.2 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream have won three of their last five home games.

The Sun are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Friday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Dream are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 home games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Friday games and 7-18 ATS in their last 25 games overall. The under is 11-4 in Dream last 15 overall and the over is 11-4 in Sun last 15 Friday games.

The Atlanta Dream already have a win over the Connecticut Sun this season and are a fiesty defensive club that plays in close games consistently. The Connecticut Sun have kind of cooled off from their hot start and are allowing almost 90 points in their last five games. The Sun are also dealing with injuries to key players in Alyssa Thomas and Chiney Ogwumike, who are both questionable for this contest, which doesn't help. I'll take the Dream at home and the points.

Atlanta Dream +6
