The Atlanta Dream and Connecticut Sun meet Friday in WNBA action at the Mohegan Sun Arena.

The Atlanta Dream look for their first road win of the season to rebound fro ma 2-5 record. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 70.6 points on 37.5 percent shooting and allowing 79.4 points on 41.2 percent shooting. Tiffany Hayes is averaging 12.7 points and 3.4 rebounds while Brittney Sykes is averaging 10.4 points and two assists. Renee Montgomery is dishing 3.7 assists and Jessica Breland is grabbing 6.7 rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 28.3 percent from beyond the arc and 73.3 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 30.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.6 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream have lost both road games this season.

The Connecticut Sun look to stay hot while building on their six-game winning streak. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 80.6 points on 41.2 percent shooting and allowing 72.9 points on 41.4 percent shooting. Jonquel Jones is averaging 17.2 points and 12 rebounds while Courtney Williams is averaging 13.1 points and 3.4 assists. Alyssa Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Shekinna Stricklen is grabbing 1.6 rebounds. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 34.7 percent from beyond the arc and 74.7 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 25.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 39.7 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have won all five home games this season.

The Dream are 37-15-1 ATS in their last 53 games playing on 1 days rest, 9-4 ATS in their last 13 road games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Sun are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 Friday games. The Dream are 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Connecticut and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Sun last 7 overall. The under is 5-2 in Dream last 7 overall.

I'm not the guy who enjoys laying massive sized chalk, but the Sun are winning at home by an average of 12 points this season and have covered five straight at home. The Atlanta Dream are shooting just 38.9 percent from the field and losing on the road by an average of 15.5 points. We've seen a lot of blowouts as of late, and this could be another one based on those numbers.

Pick:
Connecticut Sun -12.5
