The Atlanta Dream and Seattle Storm meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the IMG Academy.
The Atlanta Dream could use a feel good win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 82.4 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 89.8 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Chennedy Carter is averaging 17 points and 3.9 assists while Betnijah Laney is averaging 15.8 points and 4.3 rebounds. Kalani Brown is the third double-digit scorer and Elizabeth Williams is grabbing 5.3 rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 36.4 percent from beyond the arc and 82.6 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 35.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.8 rebounds per game.
The Seattle Storm look to keep the ball rolling while building on their five-game winning streak. The Seattle Storm are averaging 84 points on 45.8 percent shooting and allowing 75.8 points on 40.1 percent shooting. Breanna Stewart is averaging 20.1 points and 7.9 rebounds while Jewell Loyd is averaging 13.4 points and 2.3 rebounds. Sue Bird is the third double-digit scorer and Jordin Canada is dishing 5.1 assists. The Seattle Storm are shooting 38.5 percent from beyond the arc and 77.2 percent from the free throw line. The Seattle Storm are allowing 31.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.9 rebounds per game.
The Dream are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Storm are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 7-3-1 in Dream last 11 overall. The over is 5-2 in Storm last 7 vs. Eastern Conference. The Dream are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Seattle and 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The Seattle Storm are the hottest team in the league right now and have been covering machines dating back to the end of last season. The Atlanta Dream are losing games left and right and haven't been great defensively, but they've also been competitive in some of these losses, which includes a one point loss to the Storm last week. A Storm blowout victory wouldn't be surprising, but I'm leaning toward the points here.
