The Atlanta Dream and Las Vegas Aces meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the IMG Academy.
The Atlanta Dream look for another win after beating the Dallas Wings in their season opener. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 105 points on 54.8 percent shooting and allowing 95 points on 43.6 percent shooting. Monique Billings is averaging 30 points and 13 rebounds while Betnijah Laney is averaging 19 points and three assists. Chennedy Carter is the third double-digit scorer and Elizabeth Williams is grabbing seven rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 41.2 percent from beyond the arc and 88.2 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 46.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34 rebounds per game.
The Las Vegas Aces look for a victory after losing an opening heartbreaker to the Chicago Sky. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 86 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 88 points on 45.9 percent shooting. Angel McCoughtry is averaging 25 points and eight rebounds while A'ja Wilson is averaging 22 points and 11 rebounds. Dearica Hamby is the third double-digit scorer and Carolyn Swords is grabbing four rebounds. The Las Vegas Aces are shooting zero percent from beyond the arc and 73.7 percent from the free throw line. The Las Vegas Aces are allowing 33.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42 rebounds per game.
The Dream are 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Las Vegas and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings.
The Las Vegas Aces are the better team here, but they're coming off a tough loss and had an issue last year of not being able to put away their opponent, and that was when they had two of their better players. The Atlanta Dream may be rebuilding, but they looked great offensively in their season debut and shot lights out on this court. I'm also not thrilled about laying big chalk this early in the season when we're still trying to feel these teams out. I'll lean toward the Dream and the free buckets.
