The Storm are 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 Sunday games, 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. The Dream are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Seattle, 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
The Seattle Storm went from being an offensive powerhouse that needed every point to win games to improving defensively and outscoring clubs by 11.8 points in their last five games. As long as the Storm continue to improve defensively, they're going to beat a lot of teams over the head this season. The Atlanta Dream are finding ways to win games, but they're rough offensively, shooting just 39 percent from the field and 38.3 percent in their last five games. You can't be that bad and expect to hang with the Storm, the best offensive team in the league this season.
