The Liberty are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Dream are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 2 days rest. The under is 19-8 in Dream last 27 overall. The under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Atlanta.
The New York Liberty have played good basketball over these last few weeks, but their offense still comes and goes, and I'm not sure if I trust it on the road. The Atlanta Dream are coming off one of their better showings of the season against the Dallas Wings, and the addition of Maya Caldwell could be a turning point in how things play. A bucket getter, Howard led the way for the Dream in Tuesday's win and takes pressure off the rest of the players. Remember, the Dream didn't have three double-digit scorers earlier in the year, now we're seeing more players step up. I'll take my chances with the Dream at home in this spot.
