The Atlanta Dream and Chicago Sky meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the IMG Academy.
The Atlanta Dream need a win after losing 11 of their last 14 games. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 80.2 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 88.4 points on 45.8 percent shooting. Chennedy Carter is averaging 16.5 points and 2.2 rebounds while Betnijah Laney is averaging 16.5 points and 4.1 assists. Courtney Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Elizabeth Williams is grabbing 5.3 rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 34.6 percent from beyond the arc and 75 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 35.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.9 rebounds per game.
The Chicago Sky look for a win after winning five of their last 10 games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 86.2 points on 48.9 percent shooting and allowing 83.3 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Allie Quigley is averaging 15.9 points and 2.3 assists while Kahleah Copper is averaging 14.9 points and 5.4 rebounds. Cheyenne Parker is the third double-digit scorer and Courtney Vandersloot is grabbing 3.3 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 34.7 percent from beyond the arc and 80.8 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 36.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.4 rebounds per game.
The Dream are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog, 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Sky are 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 vs. Eastern Conference, 7-20 ATS in their last 27 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 9-4 in Sky last 13 overall. The over is 8-1-1 in the last 10 meetings in Chicago.
The Chicago Sky beat the Dream by 25 points when these clubs met about three weeks ago, and they're head and shoulders the better team here. However, the Dream have been a lot of more competitive lately and have covered five of their last eight games. The Chicago Sky are winning games, but their defense is up and down and they're not covering games. I'll take a shot with the Dream and the points.
