(WNBA) Atlanta vs. Phoenix, 05/18/2024 10:00 PM, Score: 85 - 88
Money Line: -115.00 Atlanta (Away)
Result: Loss
My WNBA Game Of The Month is on Atlanta against Phoenix at 10:00 pm et on Saturday. Homecourt won't be enough for the Mercury to overcome the absence of Brittany Griner and the superior talent of the Dream. Phoenix is already 0-1 while Atlanta is 1-0.

To be fair, winning their opener was going to be a tough task for the Mercury, as they were at Las Vegas. This is another difficult assignment. It doesn't help that this game is sandwiched between 2 road games at Vegas. Phoenix returns to Sin City again for its next game. They'll finally get an easier game after that, as Washington will visit Phoenix on May 23.

The Dream got 12 or more points from 4 of their 5 starters in their first game, 9 points or more from all 5. Playing on the road, they pulled away and dominated the 4th quarter. The Dream are 5-1 versus the spread the past 6 meetings with the Mercury. Play on Atlanta.
