WNBA teams that have gotten off to fast starts collide when the Atlanta Dream host the Washington Mystics on Friday night at the Gateway Center in College Park, Ga. The Dream (4-1) and Mystics (4-1) are two of three teams that have started the season winning four of their first five games. (The Aces are the other.) Atlanta is a 1.5-point favorite in the latest WNBA odds from Caesars Sportsbook while the over-under for total points scored is 159.
