The Liberty are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Storm are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games. The Liberty are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Seattle and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings overall.
Seattle has won two straight which includes beating a decent Atlanta squad. I don't have a strong play for this game but if forced to pick, I'd side with the home team and the free points. The Storm are playing some of their best ball of the season. That's not saying much but still.
