The Dream are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

The Dream are 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas Aces should be favored for obvious reasons, as they're clearly the better team, and they're at home. However, this is a boatload of points to give a Dream team that's fighting for its playoff life and still plays good enough defense to hang around with teams outside of their league. Also, the Aces have had issues, especially at home covering numbers. There's also a potential look ahead spot for Las Vegas with the Sky on deck on Thursday. Give me the points with the road team.
