The Seattle Storm could use a nice home win after splitting their last six games.

Will upate with trends once they're released.
These two teams have split the last 10 meetings, but the home team has won nine of those 10 meetings. I've been saying all year that the Storm are a different team at home where they've won 10 of their last 12 and have covered four of their five this season. While the spread may be a little too steep for my taste given the Dream's success this season, I'll take a shot with Seattle by double digits. I really like Seattle on its hoem court and until that run ends, I'll be here backing this team.
