The Mercury are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Phoenix and 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Mercury last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Storm last 5 overall.
Both of these teams have been hard to figure out lately, but it's the Storm who haven't played well the most and often look like they've thrown in the towel on the season. The Phoenix Mercury play their best ball at home where they win by an average of four points, and I get the feeling they're still capable of playing their best with the playoffs right around the corner. I'll lay the small chalk with the home team.
