Elizabeth Cambage is averaging 19.7 points and 9.4 rebounds while Skylar Diggins-Smith is averaging 19.5 points and 6.5 assists. Allisha Gray is dishing 1.8 assists and Azura Stevens is grabbing four rebounds. The Dallas Wings are shooting 30.8 percent from beyond the arc and 79.6 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 33 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.6 rebounds per game. The Dallas Wings have won three straight road games.
The Seattle Storm also look to keep the ball rolling after winning seven of their last nine games. The Seattle Storm are averaging 87 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 79.8 points on 42.8 percent shooting. Breanna Stewart is averaging 22 points and eight rebounds while Jewell Loyd is averaging 15.6 points and 3.6 assists. Natasha Howard is the third double-digit scorer and Sue Bird is dishing 7.4 assists. The Seattle Storm are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 82.8 percent from the free throw line. The Seattle Storm are allowing 34.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.3 rebounds per game. The Seattle Storm have won six of their last eight home games.
The Wings are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games, 12-2 ATS in their last 14 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Storm are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 3 or more days rest, 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a ATS loss and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Wings are 5-11 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Seattle and the under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Seattle.
The Dallas Wings are on fire right now, as they're averaging 97.6 points and outscoring teams by 20.8 points in their last five games. It's hard to turn down points here. However, the Seattle Storm just beat Dallas on the road by 21 points a few weeks ago and has the explosive offensive style that will play well with the Wings. This is going to be a highly explosive game offensively, and I give the Storm the edge in that type of contest. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the home team.
