2 units on Game Total UNDER 163 -110 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The Atlanta Dream got off to an 0-3 start and for a team that is supposed to challenge for the WNBA East title, it was a quick and harsh reality check. The Dream was playing no defense, allowing 92.7 points per game in the three losses, and that reality check was if we don't play both ends of the floor we aren't winning. They came up big in their last game vs. New York holding them to 58 points, and I expect more of the same here. The Lynx are turning up the "D" at home resulting in an 11-5-1 mark in their last 17 to the UNDER. Against the East they have played seven of their last 10 to the UNDER. Play the UNDER.
