The Storm are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Friday games. The Sun are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Seattle.
The Connecticut Sun may be without Alyssa Thomas due to a knee injury, and they're coming off a bad loss to the Washington Mystics as heavy favorites. The Seattle Storm have been just as good as the Sun this season, and they're deadly on the offensive end with two 20-point scorers. I'm not ready to say the Storm are better than the Sun, but you can make a case you're getting the better team at home with the free bucket. I rarely turn this down. Give me the Seattle Storm and the free score.
