2010 Season WNBA Basketball Past Picks

New York at Atlanta

4 units on Atlanta -210 (moneyline) (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: WIN

The Dream have lost four straight and desperately need to right the ship. What attribute did those four losses share? They were all on the road where Atlanta is just 6-7 on the season. At home, this team is a very tough, having posted an 8-2 record and scoring 87 ppg. After dropping four in a row, you can bet this team will be focused on notching the win here. While I am not sure they will cover this 4.5 point spread vs. a New York club that is 7-4 ATS on the road, I do think the Dream get the outright win. There are two very strong motivators for Atlanta here.  In addition to breaking their 4-game losing streak, they were embarrassed last game losing by 10 points. And, they were embarrassed last time they faced the Liberty losing 79-91. Winning favorites that are coming off a double-digit loss to a division rival and are now facing another winning team are 28-1 straight up the past five WNBA seasons. In addition, home favorites that are revenging a loss in which they gave up 85+ points when coming off a double-digit loss are 34-1 the past five seasons. I like the Dream on the moneyline a lot here.
