The Seattle Storm could also use a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Seattle Storm are averaging 79.9 points on 45.9 percent shooting and allowing 82.9 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Breanna Stewart is averaging 19.5 points and 9.7 rebounds while Jewell Loyd is averaging 15.9 points and 2.7 assists.

The Storm are allowing 33.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29 rebounds per game. The Seattle Storm have lost four of their last six home games.
The Mystics are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 road games and 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Storm are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The over is 21-8 in the last 29 meetings.
Neither team has played all that well this season, but the Storm do play their best ball on their home court and have beaten the Mystics in three of the last five meetings. So, in a toss-up game, I'm siding with the home team rather than the road team that's lost four straight.
