The Dream are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 Tuesday games, 4-9 ATS in their last 13 road games and 7-17 ATS in their last 24 games overall. The Liberty are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 vs. Eastern Conference, 3-12 ATS in their last 15 Tuesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Dream are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in New York, 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the under is 12-3 in the last 15 meetings in New York.
The Atlanta Dream are finding ways to win games due to a fiesty defense and just enough offense from their top two players. The New York Liberty are falling apart and in need of a pick me up before this season gets away from them. The problem here is that the Dream are likely without their top scorer for this game, which is big considering this offense hasn't been good to begin with. At home, the Liberty should be able to win and cover the small number.
