The Sky are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Seattle and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings overall.
I'm not backing the Sky with a banged up Delle Donne. The Storm are fairly decent at home and know they need this game if they're going to get back in the playoff race. I'll take the Storm and the points in more of a fade from the Sky with their banged up best player.
