The Aces are 7-21 ATS in the last 28 meetings in Seattle, 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings and the over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
It's always an offensive shootout whenever these teams meet, and it was no different when the Aces and Storm met earlier this year. The Storm have consistently been an offensive machine this season, while there's only one team allowing more points per game this season than the Aces. This total is quite high, but I don't think it's high enough. Give me the over.
