The Sun are 6-0-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss and14-5-1 ATS in their last 20 vs. Western Conference. The Storm are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Seattle.
It's hard to trust either of these teams considering the losses have been piling up. However, the Storm play better at home than the Sun do on the road, and Seattle has pretty much outplayed Connecticut in both meetings this season. Give me the home team and the reasonable number.
