The Storm are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Sky are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Storm are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Chicago.
The Storm are a team to watch down the stretch, as I like the way they're playing currently and think they could be a dangerous team if they sneak into the playoffs. However, Seattle doesn't play the same way it does in the Key Arena and the Sky are finally playing to their potential. Give me the home team and small chalk.
