The Storm are 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 Sunday games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Sky are 4-13 ATS in their last 17 home games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Storm are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Chicago and the over is 9-1 in the last 10 meetings.
Not only are we getting the better team with the free point, but the Seattle Storm beat the Chicago Sky 103-66 just a couple of weeks ago. Sure, the Storm aren't the same team on the road as they are at home, something I've said all year, but this line doesn't make much sense. Not to mention the Sky are being outscored by seven points at home this season. I'll take the better team here and the favorable line.
