The Wings are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss and 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 games as a favorite. The under is 6-2-1 in Dream last 9 overall. The under is 4-0 in Wings last 4 overall. The over is 26-8 in the last 34 meetings.
Neither of these teams have been all that impressive this season, so I'm not running to the window to bak either of these clubs. However, the Dream have been the better team on both sides of the court up to this season and we're getting a free bucket with them. If forced to pick this contest, I'd lean toward the Dream and the points.
