In the first game of this season the Dream put up 105 points so this is a squad that can run up the score, they just need to be more consistent with that part of their game.

The Storm are the better team and they are going to get the job done in this game. Look for them to attack a weak defense of the Dream and that will be enough to get the job done. Back the Storm to win this game and cover the spread.
