The Storm are 19-9 ATS in their last 28 Sunday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest. The Shock are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 home games and 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in Tulsa.
Even with the Shock playing lights out ball and the Storm playing on the end of a back-to-back, this is a lot of points to lay in a WNBA game. Also, the Storm have improved offensively and have lost their last two games by one bucket each. I'll take the points if forced to pick this matchup.
