The Atlanta Dream and Las Vegas Aces meet Tuesday in WNBA action at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

The Atlanta Dream could use a win here to snap a nine-game losing streak. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 70 points on 36.6 percent shooting and allowing 78.8 points on 41.2 percent shooting. Tiffany Hayes is averaging 14 points and 3.2 rebounds while Brittney Sykes is averaging 10.7 points and 2.6 assists. Elizabeth Williams is grabbing 6.2 rebounds and Renee Montgomery is dishing 2.8 assists. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 28.2 percent from beyond the arc and 76.2 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 33.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.4 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream have lost each of their last six road games.

The Las Vegas Aces look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 14 games. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 80.8 points on 42.5 percent shooting and allowing 76 points on 38.8 percent shooting. Liz Cambage is averaging 15.5 points and eight rebounds while A'ja Wilson is averaging 15.4 points and 6.6 rebounds. Kayla McBride is the third double-digit scorer and Dearica Hamby is grabbing 7.2 rebounds. The Las Vegas  Aces are shooting 37.4 percent from beyond the arc and 77.8 percent from the free throw line. The Las Vegas Aces are allowing 32.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.7 rebounds per game. The Las Vegas Aces have won eight of their last 10 home games.

The Dream are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 2 days rest, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Aces are 3-12-1 ATS in their last 16 games following a straight up win and 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS win. The Dream are 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Las Vegas and 5-16 ATS in the last 21 meetings. The under is 5-2-1 in Aces last 8 overall. The over is 3-0-1 in Dream last 4 games playing on 2 days rest.

The Las Vegas Aces are head and shoulders the better team here, but they're also not great ATS on the season, covering just 10 of 25 games and six of their 14 home games. The Aces are winning at home by an average of just six points and are still playing without one of their best players. The Atlanta Dream may be awful, but they have been good against the number playing on extended rest and did have their chances to beat the Fever on the road as 5.5-point underdogs. I don't want to back the Dream as the next guy, but the Aces have had trouble covering numbers all year, so I can't leave this many points on the table.

Pick:
Atlanta Dream +12.5
