San Antonio at Atlanta

3 units on Atlanta -3 (-110) (risk 3 to win 2.7) RESULT: loss
The Atlanta Dream have plenty of talent, so their 2-6 start is a surprise, the team’s worst start since their inaugural 2008 season in which they mustered only four wins. Angel McCoughtry (16.3 points per contest) and Shalee Lehning lead a strong Atlanta offense and McCoughtry led the Dream with 24 points the last game — her second best scoring performance of the season. Atlanta is 1-1 the last two games, beating Chicago at home, and this will be their fourth straight home game. The fans and the team will be in to this one with San Antonio coming to town, the team with the best record in the WNBA. The San Antonio Silver Stars open a three-game road trip here. This will be only their third road game of the season, and they squeezed out a win their last road game at Phoenix while surrendering 99 points. The Silver Stars are 11-27-1 ATS in their last 39 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 Sunday games. Look for a huge effort by the hungry, and desperate, home team. Play Atlanta.
