The Seattle Storm could also use a win after losing eight of their last 12 games. The Seattle Storm are averaging 80.3 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 81.8 points on 45 percent shooting. Breanna Stewart is averaging 19.1 points and 9.5 rebounds while Jewell Loyd is averaging 16.1 points and three assists.

The Stars are 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. Western Conference. The Storm are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Stars are 7-20 ATS in the last 27 meetings in Seattle and 9-20-1 ATS in the last 30 meetings overall.
This total seems low when you consider the Storm shoot nearly 37 percent from deep at home and the over is 8-2-1 in Seattl's last 11 home games. I know the Stars struggle offensively, but I like the value of this low total and am going to play the over in this spot.
