The Atlanta Dream were expected to be here playing in the WNBA Eastern Finals. That certainly didn't look to be the case as they started the season 3-9 and looked to be anything but a playoffs contender. They got their act together, and finished the regular season on a 17-5 run. It didn't stop there as they swept Connecticut in two straight, including a win at Connecticut where the Sun had been 15-2 on the season. That moves them to 19-5 in their last 24 games, playing better than anyone in the league. Indiana skidded and limped down the stretch finishing the season at just 3-6 straight-up, covering just one of the three games vs. New York to get here and is on a 1-4 ATS run and looking very vulnerable. The Dream is now 5-0 ATS in their last five playoffs games as a dog, and are a live dog in this one. Atlanta gets the call.
