The Atlanta Dream and New York Liberty meet Thursday in WNBA action at the IMG Academy.
The Atlanta Dream need a win after losing 10 of their last 12 games. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 80.1 points on 44.5 percent shooting and allowing 90.3 points on 46.8 percent shooting. Chennedy Carter is averaging 16.5 points and 2.3 rebounds while Betnijah Laney is averaging 16.4 points and 4.4 assists. Courtney Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Elizabeth Williams is grabbing 5.4 rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 74.4 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 37.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.3 rebounds per game.
The New York Liberty need a win after losing nine of their last 10 games. The New York Liberty are averaging 74.1 points on 38 percent shooting and allowing 89.1 points on 46.4 percent shooting. Sabrina Ionescu is averaging 18.3 points and four assists while Layshia Clarendon is averaging 12.5 points and 2.9 rebounds.

The Dream are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games as a favorite and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Liberty are 8-18-2 ATS in their last 28 vs. Eastern Conference, 6-22-2 ATS in their last 30 games as an underdog and 6-23-2 ATS in their last 31 games overall. The over is 7-3 in Dream last 10 overall. The over is 4-1 in Liberty last 5 games playing on 1 days rest.
The Atlanta Dream are the better team here and have the more trustworthy offense, but I have issues laying chalk with teams that can't win outright. The New York Liberty obviously have struggles of their own, but the Dream have lost 10 of their last 12 tries. I'm not laying chalk with them in any circumstance. Give me the points if forced to pick this game.
