Atlanta (10-4) and Chicago are battling for the top spot in the East. Atlanta is well rested for this one against a bad Tulsa team (5-13), having had three full days off, and the Dream is 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games playing on three or more days rest. This is the end of a four-game road trip, and they are hungry for a win riding a three-game skid, two of those losses were against the top teams in the West. Atlanta is on a 10-4 ATS run overall, and the Dream is 19-7 ATS against a team with a losing record. Atlanta knows how to play tough defense, too, allowing 72.1 ppg -- second best in the WNBA. They always turn up the defense after a defeat, with the UNDER 5-0 in the Dream's last five games following a loss. Meanwhile, last place Tulsa has a losing record at home, is on a 2-5 ATS run, and the Shock is 3-8 ATS against the Eastern Conference. It's a short turnaround for Tulsa, off a win at Seattle on Friday, and they are still on a 2-7 SU/3-6 ATS run. The UNDER is 16-5-1 in the Shock's last 22 Sunday games, and when these teams meet, Atlanta is 4-1-1 ATS in the last six meetings, including 4-1-2 ATS in the last seven meetings in Tulsa. Two plays: 1) Play the Atlanta Dream; 2) Play Atlanta/Tulsa Under the Total.
