The Atlanta Dream and Indiana Fever meet Saturday in WNBA action at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The Atlanta Dream could use a win here to snap an eight-game losing streak. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 69.4 points on 36.3 percent shooting and allowing 78.4 points on 41.3 percent shooting. Tiffany Hayes is averaging 13.1 points and three rebounds while Brittney Sykes is averaging 10.5 points and 2.5 assists. Elizabeth Williams is grabbing 6.2 rebounds and Renee Montgomery is dishing 2.8 assists. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 27.5 percent from beyond the arc and 76.2 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 32.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.4 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream have lost their last five road games.
The Indiana Fever also need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Indiana Fever are averaging 77 points on 42.2 percent shooting and allowing 79.6 points on 42.3 percent shooting. Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 13 points and 2.7 assists while Erica Wheeler is averaging 11.7 points and 2.6 rebounds. Candice Dupree is the third double-digit scorer and Natalie Achonwa is grabbing 5.3 rebounds. The Indiana Fever are shooting 34.1 percent from beyond the arc and 80.8 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Fever are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.7 rebounds per game. The Indiana Fever have lost eight of their last 10 home games.
The Dream are 21-43 ATS in their last 64 games playing on 3 or more days rest, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Fever are 8-22 ATS in their last 30 home games, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Dream are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 4-1-1 in Fever last 6 Saturday games. The under is 4-1-1 in Dream last 6 road games.
The Indiana Fever have played their best ball at home this season, but that's not saying much for a team that's lost eight of their last10 at home. The Atlanta Dream lose on the road by an average of 10.9 points, and they're losing their last five games overall by an average of 14 points while shooting 34.4 percent from the field. I'm not trying to get behind either of these teams, but if forced to pick, I have to side with the free buckets. The Fever aren't worth laying chalk for.
