Seattle Storm vs Atlanta Dream: Rising Through the Storm
The Seattle Storm (11-26, 8-10 Western Conference) will travel to College Park, Georgia to face the Atlanta Dream (17-20, 10-9 Eastern Conference) on Wednesday at 7 p.m. EDT.
Atlanta Dream: A Snapshot
While the Dream hold a 10-8 home record this season, their recent form has been abysmal, losing 10 of their last 13 games, indicating vulnerabilities that can be exploited.
Allisha Gray and Cheyenne Parker have been standout performers for the Dream. However, the team as a whole has been struggling, especially in high-stakes, close games.
Nia Coffey is out with a hand injury, further weakening the Dream's roster and offering fewer options for rotation.

Keeping It Close
The Storm may have a poor road record, but they're fourth in the league in rebounds per game, with Ezi Magbegor leading the charge. This could be a critical factor in keeping the game close and potentially covering the spread.
Jewell Loyd has been in excellent form, averaging 23.0 points over the last 10 games. Magbegor is also contributing significantly, adding 13.7 points and eight rebounds per game.
The Dream's recent losing streak and mediocre home record cast doubt on their ability to dominate the game, especially by a margin as large as 8 points.
The Storm have shown they can keep games competitive, as evidenced by their previous narrow win against the Dream. Their strength in rebounding adds more weight to their potential to cover the spread.
Jewell Loyd's exceptional scoring form and Ezi Magbegor's prowess in rebounds and defense could be the deciding factors in this matchup. These elements set the Storm in good stead to cover the +8 points spread against the Dream.
Given the Dream's recent struggles and the Storm's potential in key statistical areas, it seems highly likely that the Storm will cover the +8 points spread. While the game may be a close affair, current trends suggest that the Storm are well-equipped to challenge the Dream.
