The latest odds and predictions for this game are yet to be updated.

The Phoenix Mercury will aim to get back to winning ways when they meet the Atlanta Dream in the next away game in the WNBA on Sunday afternoon. It has been a frustrating couple of weeks for Vanessa Nygaard’s squad as they faced 4 consecutive losses. They managed to give a good fight to the Sparks in the last fixture.

Skylar Diggins-Smith and Tina Charles played well as they added 49 points and 11 rebounds together. However, it was not enough to go past the opposition and they got a narrow defeat by 5 points.

The Atlanta Dream has also looked out of form in the last two games. They will look to dominate the Mercury in their home arena on Sunday and give their campaign a much-needed boost. However, it is surely not going to be easy for them after a crushing defeat to the Washington Mystics in the last game.

None of the star players looked in form as Aari McDonald was the only one in the team who could score in double-digits. The Dream would like to forget that game and go all guns blazing against the Mercury.
