Atlanta on Season-Best Win Streak

The red-hot Atlanta Dream are the big favorite in the WNBA odds as they prepare to host the struggling Seattle Storm on Wednesday, searching for its sixth straight victory.

The Dream have won two in a row at home after losing five of their first six at Gateway Center Arena and come in off back-to-back wins on the road against the Chicago Sky – both by double digits.

Atlanta earned an 82-68 triumph last Friday, shooting 47.8% from the field. Rhyne Howard led the way with 32 points in the 88-77 win two days later, as the Dream limited Chicago to 10 points in the fourth quarter.

Seattle has lost six straight games after falling behind by 20 through three quarters Tuesday and settling for a 93-86 loss at Washington. Jewell Loyd scored 39 points in the defeat while tying a regular-season WNBA record with nine 3-pointers in a game (Kelsey Mitchell, 2019).

Atlanta is fifth in ESPN’s latest WNBA Power Rankings. Seattle is 11th, above only the Indiana Fever, if you are online gambling.

Storm Drops to Cellar

Seattle’s losing streak has landed it at the bottom of the WNBA standings, with the Phoenix Mercury at 4-15.

Loyd’s big night came after her worst shooting game of the season at New York on Saturday, when the league’s leading scorer (25.7) was 3-for-17 from the field.

Ezi Magbegor continued her consistent play with 12 points and nine rebounds against the Mystics on Tuesday, but the Storm dropped to 2-6 on the road.

South Florida rookie Dulcy Fankam Mendjiadeu recorded the first two double-doubles of her career in the last two games for Seattle, averaging 12 points and 12.5 boards.

If you are betting online, know that over is 7-3 in the Storm’s past 10 games after the scoring explosion on Tuesday.

Howard on Dream Run

Howard, a second-year pro, has been difficult to stop the last four games, averaging 26.8 points on 57% shooting from the field. The Kentucky product scored 43 in the win over Los Angeles on July 2.

Howard leads the Dream in scoring overall (18.7), but she has had plenty of help this season from Allisha Gray (18.1) and Cheyenne Parker (14.9). Gray has averaged 19.1 points during the win streak, while Parker boasts double-doubles in the past three games.

Danielle Robinson has also played a big role in the last two contests, totaling 25 points and 12 assists for Atlanta, which is third in the league in scoring (86.7), second in rebounding, but second-to-last in least turnovers (14.5).

The over is 12-6 at the sportsbook in Dream games this season, despite being 0-2 in the last two.

Storm vs Dream Head-to-Head

Seattle has won eight of the last nine meetings, including two of three last season.

Atlanta’s lone victory in that span was at home in July 2022, as Parker registered 21 points, nine rebounds and four assists. Howard averaged 16.7 in the three games last year.

Loyd had 26 points in the first game against the Dream in 2022 (a 72-60 win) but was 5-for-19 from the field in the other two.

The home team won all three matchups last season and is 4-0 in the past four. The under is 4-2 in the last six meetings, according to WNBA lines.

Storm vs Dream Picks and Prediction

Everything is going against the Storm in this one. Atlanta is playing its best basketball while Seattle is struggling.

But it could go both ways. The Dream may turn the game into a blowout, or they might take the Storm too lightly.

Howard, Parker and Gray are playing so well right now, though, and Loyd’s got to be tired after hoisting 22 shots in 35 minutes on Tuesday.

Atlanta should cover if the WNBA spread stays in single digits, and the teams are the bottom two in the league in points against.
