The Fever are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games, 5-16 ATS in their last 21 games following a ATS win and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games.

The last two meetings between the Dream and Fever have been decided by five points, which includes when they met a couple of days ago. The Fever have been god awful this season, but they've come close to wins recently and find themselves in a lot of close games. The Dream also are a sluggish team that is solid defensively but very inconsistent offensively, which results in close games for them as well. The points is the safe side to be on in this game.
