The Sun are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. Western Conference, 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Storm are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Sun last 5 overall. The over is 7-3-1 in Storm last 11 Tuesday games. The over is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings in Seattle.
The Connecticut Sun can't score the basketball and aren't covering numbers. The Seattle Storm look solid through four games, and they're proving to be one of the more balanced teams in the league. If the form of both clubs continues this should be an absolute beatdown from the Storm. The Connecticut Sun have done nothing through four games for me to get behind them right now.
