The Storm are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest, 5-13 ATS in their last 18 Tuesday games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Stars are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 Tuesday games, 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Storm are 21-9-1 ATS in the last 31 meetings and the over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in San Antonio.
The Storm aren't the same team on the road as they are at home, and the Stars are due for a win eventually. I'm staying away from the side. Instead, I'm going to play the under here. The total opened up far lower than this number and 162 points would require the Stars to shoot well above their season average. I'm not buying it. Give me the under.
