The Sky’s offense has been a big issue heading into this game, and they are going to really struggle again in this game. The Dream’s defense hasn’t been exactly elite, but the Sky’s offense has struggled against everyone, it doesn’t matter how bad a defense has been. Look for the lack of scoring by the Sky to be the difference as the Dream are going to get the job done here. Back the Dream against the spread.
