The Storm are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games. The Stars are 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 home games and 5-11-2 ATS in their last 18 games overall. The Storm are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Stars are simply the worst team in the WNBA and playing at home doesn't seem to help. The Storm have shown signs of life this season and have a consistent offense that should have little trouble scoring on a San Antonio team that plays little defense. Give me the road team and small chalk.
