The Atlanta Dream are covering games lately, but this line suggests they can win, and I'm just not there with this team. The Connecticut Sun have played their best ball over these last two weeks and ae far more trustworthy on the defensive side of the ball. In a new pick em, I'll take my chances with the Sun.
