2 units on Game Total OVER 164.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: win
The Atlanta Dream has gotten off to an extremely slow start at 2-7, including 1-5 at home. They have really shot the ball poorly with three of their top four scorers at 38% or less. This won't last forever as there is quality here, and good players don't shoot poorly forever, and I expect an offensive breakout game here at home in this one. The Liberty might be the perfect storm for this to take place as they have allowed 80+ in six of their eight games this season, and in their five road games, they are allowing 86.2 points per game. The Liberty is having trouble in the Eastern Conference where they are just 2-7 ATS in their last nine, and in their last six road games, all six have topped the total. Atlanta has eclipsed the total in seven of their last 10 at home and 11 of their last 15 vs. the East. Play on Atlanta and the OVER.
