0.5 unit on Atlanta -6 (-105) (risk 0.5 to return 0.5)  RESULT: win

0.5 unit on Game Total UNDER 163 -110 (risk 0.5 to return 0.5)  RESULT: win

The Atlanta Dream (2-0) has been a powerhouse on offense in the young season, scoring 98 and 86 points. They were a +5 dog at Indiana the last game, but rolled 86-77. This team started clicking late last season and continues to roll, with the Dream on a 10-4 ATS run, plus 9-4 ATS against the Eastern Conference. Angel McCoughtry had 29 points and nine rebounds in the 86-77 upset at defending champion Indiana on Friday. The Dream shot 50.0 percent, while spoiling the Fever's title celebration. The Dream is 5-2 ATS playing on one days rest, and Atlanta likes playing Washington, having won five straight in the series (4-1 ATS).  The Washington Mystics (1-0) have one win, but they are rebuilding as Washington has finished last in the Eastern Conference in each of the past two seasons while posting a combined 11-57 record. The Mystics are 1-5 ATS in their last six games playing on three or more days rest, and 0-10 ATS after a win. Washington is 1-0 UNDER the total, playing better defense this season because of first-year coach Mike Thibault; they held Tulsa to 43% shooting. The total has gone UNDER in four of Washington's last six games, and the UNDER is 4-1 in the Mystics last five vs. the Eastern Conference.  The Dream won last season's four meetings by an average of 17.0 points, so two plays for this one: 1) Play the Atlanta Dream; 2) Play the Atlanta Dream/Washington Mystics UNDER the Total.
