1 unit on Game Total UNDER 161 -105 (risk 1 to return 1)  RESULT: WIN

Two of the top teams in the WNBA meet in this late night matchup. This huge line for Atlanta, despite a 10-3 record shows how important home court is in the WNBA. It should be somewhat of a playoffs atmosphere and that often means defensive intensity. Dream road games this season have averaged just 150 points - over 10 full points lower than this total. Yes, LA can score like crazy, but their defense is very good at home (66.9 points per game allowed). In their eight home games this season, the Sparks are 6-2 to the UNDER, thanks to that defense. LA has a long history of great defense when the best teams come calling as they are 34-19 UNDER vs. teams at .750 or better. Atlanta is 9-1 UNDER the past three seasons after back-to-back losses. Look for the Dream to play their best defense here and for this game to come in UNDER this lofty total.
