The Dream are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Storm are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games, 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Dream are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Seattle and 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The under is 6-2 in Storm last 8 overall. The over is 4-1 in Dream last 5 overall.
While I'm not sure I want to lay big chalk with the Storm, backing the Dream is damn near impossible. The Dream haven't only lost nine of their last 10 games, but they're losing their last five games by an average of 9.8 points and are losing on the road by an average of 14.5 points. The Storm also already beat the Dream by 16 points on the road this season. If forced to pick, give me the chalk with the Storm. I want no parts of the Dream.
