Atlanta at Chicago

1 unit on Atlanta +7 (-108) (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: LOSS
This game certainly has the look of the likely matchup in the WNBA Eastern Conference Finals. I think both teams would be interested in testing the waters, and sending a message in this one, so the intensity level here should be pretty high. The Dream lost at home to the Sky by 11 points just a week ago, but also owns a 14-point win against them earlier in the season. Atlanta has been in and out, and at times seems out of focus, and the "A" game doesn't make it to the floor. I think they have reasons a plenty to bring that "A" game to the floor tonight, and with it the margin is much thinner between these clubs. The Dream has a track record of that being the case at 6-2 ATS in their last eight vs. a winning team, and have taken the money in five of their last seven here. Take the points on Atlanta.
