Atlanta at Phoenix

2 units on Atlanta +6.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
Phoenix is home and favored but isn’t playing well. The Mercury is on a 2-5 SU/ATS run, losing three times as chalk. The team is still adjusting to the trade that sent former starting center Kara Braxton to the New York Liberty for new starter Nakia Sanford. Atlanta comes to town as a red-hot team that is 7-2 SU and 5-3-1 ATS the last nine games. The Dream (10-11) are on a two-game winning streak. Atlanta jumped back into the playoffs race and is five games behind the Indiana Fever - the top team in the Eastern Conference. The Dream are coming off an impressive 70-53 victory against the Seattle Storm and a 72-70 victory against the Washington Mystics. Grab the red-hot dog and play on Atlanta.
