The under is 4-1 in Aces last 5 road games. The under is 13-3 in Dream last 16 overall. The Aces are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Atlanta.
The Las Vegas Aces are the more talented team and should be favored here, but this is a lot of points to lay on the road, especially this early in the season. The Atlanta Dream are also playing good ball out the gate and are currently one of the top defensive teams in the league. The Dream struggle to find consistent offense, but they grind games out, and they're second in points allowed per game and first in field goal percentage allowed. I'll take a shot with the home dog here.
