The Atlanta Dream was supposed to challenge for the WNBA East this year, but this team has disappointed over and over. The Dream is 4-9 and sits one game from the basement in the East, despite the fact that this is game 14 and will be their ninth at home. This team, if not for New York or Chicago, would still be looking for their first win of the season, as they stand winless against everyone else. Indiana sits atop the East and arguably has played the strongest schedule to date. They have played six on the road, and all but one of the six games was vs. teams at or over the .500 mark on the season. The Fever stands at 41-19 ATS in their last 60 as a favorite of 4.5 or less. They are off back-to-back losses, so the focus here should be very sharp. Their defense usually leads the way as they have played UNDER in four of their last five games on the season. The Dream’s offense has just not been what it was last year and their last six vs. the East, five have finished UNDER the total. They have also played six of their last eight overall to the UNDER. This one goes to Indiana on the moneyline, and the UNDER.
