The Lynx are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games. The Storm are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Lynx are 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Seattle and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Storm are the last team to beat the Lynx and do play better at home, which they haven't been at in quite some time. Also, four of the last five meetings between these clubs have been decided by single digits. You guys know how I feel about big chalk and there's good reason to avoid here despite how crazy good Minnesota is right now.
Give me the points and the home team.
