The Seattle Storm are allowing 33.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.2 rebounds per game. The Seattle Storm have won seven of their last eight road games.
The Indiana Fever look for another cool victory after suddenly winning three of their last five games. The Indiana Fever are averaging 75.2 points on 40.8 percent shooting and allowing 83.9 points on 46.9 percent shooting. Candice Dupree is averaging 13.9 points and 6.5 rebounds while Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 12.8 points and 2.6 assists.

The Storm are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference, 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Fever are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Storm are 2-9 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Indiana, 4-12-1 ATS in the last 17 meetings and over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
I'm never a fan of laying heavy chalk, but the Seattle Storm are starting to truly seperate themselves from the pack and have had no problem covering these big numbers. The Storm also beat the Fever a couple of weeks ago by 20 points and have won five of the last seven meetings, most in blowout fashion. The Fever have also failed to cover six of their last nine games as a double-digit underdog. I'll take the Storm in a blowout victory.
