The Atlanta Dream are allowing 33.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream have lost five of their last seven road games.
The Seattle Storm need a win after losing four of their last five games. The Seattle Storm are averaging 74.1 points on 41.5 percent shooting and allowing 74.7 points on 43.8 percent shooting. Natasha Howard is averaging 18.1 points and 8.1 rebounds while Jewell Loyd is averaging 12.2 points and two assists. Jordin Canada is dishing five assists and Alysha Clark is grabbing 4.8 rebounds.

The Dream are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games playing on 2 days rest, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Storm are 22-8 ATS in their last 30 games following a ATS loss, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games and 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 vs. Eastern Conference. The Dream are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Seattle and 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The under is 9-2 in Storm last 11 Sunday games. The over is 7-2 in Dream last 9 overall.
I don't want to back the Atlanta Dream as much as the next guy, but the Storm are falling apart rather quickly, losing four of their last five games and losing by an average of 10 points during that span. It's almost like the Storm have given up on the season, and they're now winning at home by just an average of 1.8 points. At this point, the Dream should be able to hang around.
