The Storm are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Mystics are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Seattle and the over is 23-11 in the last 34 meetings.
The Washington Mystics have been the most impressive team out of the gate, while the Seattle Storm are clicking since their opening night loss. Both teams are extremely offensive minded and haven't shown the ability to defend quite yet. The over seems like a logical play, but this number is quite steep. I'll give the edge to the Storm at home and because a combination of Loyd and Stewart has been downright scray for opposing teams so far. I'll lay the bucket.
