2 units on Atlanta -6 (-110) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
Looks like these teams are trading roles from a year ago. New York was out of the gate slow at 4-7 then went on to finish 17-5 in their last 22 games. Atlanta was projected to be at or near the top of the WNBA East this season, but limped out of the gate at a heartbreaking 3-9. They have turned it on and have since been 5-1 over their last six, and have won each of their last four home games by 6 points or more. The Liberty is now 2-7 ATS following an ATS loss in their last nine and has lost the magic touch from a year ago. Meanwhile the Dream are tapping into that potential that was prescribed by many at the onset of the 2011 season. We have a good team that is finally hitting their stride and playing with confidence. We get them at home vs. a team that has simply lost the magic that propelled them in the second half a year ago. Atlanta gets the call.
