The Minnesota Lynx look like a team that doesn't have an identity through nine games, and they've been getting blasted on the defensive end. The Atlanta Dream have consistency issues, but they usually win the games they're supposed to win, and they're one of the better defensive teams in the league. At home, the Dream should grind out a victory against a team they're more talented than. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Dream.
