Atlanta was led by Betnijah Laney who put up 24 points, 10 rebounds, and four assists. On the season the Dream are averaging 81.1 points per game while letting opponents shoot 88.4 percent from the field. The Dream are shooting 44.3 percent from the field while giving up 45.8 percent from the field.
The best player all season for the Dream has been Laney who comes into this game averaging 16.9 points while shooting 48.1 percent from the field. The Dream only have four players who are averaging at least ten points per game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Connecticut Sun who sit below .500 but they were able to take their last game against a good Phoenix Mercury to overtime. In that overtime period though, the Sun only managed six points and that led to a loss. Before that loss, Connecticut had won two games in a row.

The Sun might have lost their last game, but they are playing the better basketball and their offense is going to be the difference. Look for the Sun to run up the score and the Dream will have no answer. Back Connecticut to win this game and cover the spread.
