The Seattle Storm and Washington Mystics meet Friday in WNBA action at the Entertainment and Sports Arena.
The Seattle Storm look for a victory after splitting their last six games. The Seattle Storm are averaging 76.9 points on 42.9 percent shooting and allowing 75.1 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Natasha Howard is averaging 19.6 points and 9.1 rebounds while Jewell Loyd is averaging 16.3 points and 3.4 assists. Jordin Canada is the third double-digit scorer and Alysha Clark is grabbing 4.5 rebounds. The Seattle Storm are shooting 28.4 percent from beyond the arc and 81.1 percent from the free throw line. The Seattle Storm are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.7 rebounds per game. The Seattle Storm have lost three of their last five road games.
The Washington Mystics look for another win after winning four of their last five games. The Washington Mystics are averaging 87.2 points on 45.7 percent shooting and allowing 79 points on 45.7 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 14 points and 7.4 rebounds while Emma Meesseman is averaging 13.3 points and 2.3 assists. Natasha Cloud is the third double-digit scorer and Kristi Toliver is dishing 5.2 assists. The Washington Mystics are shooting 32.1 percent from beyond the arc and 85.9 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Mystics are allowing 31.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.5 rebounds per game. The Washington Mystics have won their last seven home games.
The Storm are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 2 days rest, 13-6 ATS in their last 19 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS win. The Mystics are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Friday games. The Storm are 2-5-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Mystics last 5 home games. The under is 11-5-2 in Storm last 18 overall. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Washington.
The over has hit in five of the last eight games between the Storm and Mystics and has hit in four of Washington's last five home games. The Mystics are averaging 95 points on 50.2 percent shooting at home this season. While the Seattle Storm have fallen off a little bit offensively in their last few games, they still have three-point shooting and can put together enough runs to get us over the total. I like the over as a much better option that playing with this big chalk.
