The Sky are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 vs. Western Conference. The Storm are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
The Storm have beaten the Sky in five of the last nine meetings and the home team has won six of the last ten. The Sky continue to be the most frustrating team in the WNBA due to inconsistency despite a large amount of talent. I'm taking the home team and the free bucket because I don't trust the Sky at all.
