The Seattle Storm look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Seattle Storm are averaging 70.9 points on 43.6 percent shooting and allowing 77.8 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Crystal Langhorne is averaging 11.3 points and 5.9 rebounds while Sue Bird is averaging 10.3 points and 5.6 assists. Jenna O'Hea is dishing 2.5 assists and Jewell Loyd is grabbing 3.4 rebounds. The Seattle Storm have topped 80 points in four of their last seven games and are still in playoff contention in the West. The Storm must get rolling if they hope to clinch the last seed. The Storm are 6-7 SU on their home court and have split their last eight.
The Mystics are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Storm are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference. The Mystics are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Mystics have shown that they can get beaten on the road, and the Storm are showing signs of a late push with wins in two of their last three games. This is also a big game for the Storm who still have playoff hopes. I like the home dog here.
