Whatever the Atlanta Dream's "A" game is, we are likely to see it tonight. That game was good enough to get them out of the gate at 10-1, and sometimes it just takes a big game at home to get things going. It must be noted that they lost at LA by just 4 points when they were in the midst of a stretch that saw them go 1-8, and LA came into that one on a five-game winning streak. That game also played out on the defensive end of the court, falling shy of the total by double-digits, and the intensity for this one spells a similar pace. LA is once again the hot hand, having won 9 of their last 10, but on the season they have suffered six of their eight losses away from LA, and overall are just 5-10 ATS in their last 15. The Sparks have posted three straight games at home scoring 90+, but have only touched 90 on the road just once, and that was vs. Tulsa. The fact is that in their six road games against teams that are currently .500 or better, the Sparks have averaged just 72.8points per game, and have been held to 65 or less in three of the last five. The Dream are 15-5 ATS in their last 20 at home including 5-0 ATS on a day of rest. LA has played six straight to the UNDER on the road, while Atlanta is 5-1 to the UNDER in their last six vs. a winning team. Take Atlanta and play the UNDER.
