Phoenix Mercury vs Atlanta Dream Prediction

The Atlanta Dream are probably the better team in this current spot given their effort in their opener and with the Mercury still down Griner. However, the Phoenix Mercury put together an honest effort against the Aces and were solid enough defensively to where it was an encouraging loss. The Mercury can build on their opening game and at home, you’d think they’d have even more of a pep in their step. This is another road game for the Dream, and this much traveling this early in the season could be tricky. Near pick em spot, give me the Mercury at home.
