The Seattle Storm have played their best ball at home this season, but it's Las Vegas that's the better team here and enters this contest winning its last five games by an average of 10.4 points while shooting 45 percent from the field.

This game could certainly go either way, but we are getting a free bucket with the better team, which is always tough to pass up.
