Randy’s Free Pick
The Dallas Wings are the better team here, but they're also a below average team until proven otherwise, and I'm not excited to lay big points with them on the road. The Seattle Storm were terrible in their season opener, but it came against Las Vegas. A lot of teams are going to look awful against the Aces this season. Let's give the Storm another chance to show where they're at against a more realistic opponent. I'll take a stab with the home dog, as I don't think the Wings are this much better just yet.
