The Atlanta Dream look to get a game above a .500 record when they play their first home game of the season. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 79.5 points on 41 percent shooting and allowing 82 points on 42.4 percent shooting. Tiffany Hayes is averaging 18 points and two rebounds while Brittney Sykes is averaging 13.5 points and two assists. Angel McCoughtry is the third double-digit scorer and Renee Montgomery is dishing 3.5 assists. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 30.6 percent from beyond the arc and 73.2 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 29 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream have lost five of their last seven home games.
The Wings are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 Saturday games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Dream are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 vs. Western Conference, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Wings are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Atlanta, 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings and the over is 23-5 in the last 28 meetings.
The Dallas Wings haven't looked good on the road so far this season and are struggling mightily defensively, which was the biggest concern of this team. The Wings play fast offensively and try to outscore you, but they don't get many stops. The Atlanta Dream looked solid in their last performance and now return for their home opener to what should be a decent crowd. McCoughtry currently being the third scorer on the Dream is a good sign in terms of their depth. I'll lay the bucket.
