Seattle has been a fixture at or near the top of the WNBA standings for a long time. This season they will surely be tested without the services of Lauren Jackson, and Sue Bird - a pair of instrumental players. The Storm felt the losses in game one really hard, dropping their opener to LA by a 102-69 score. They have since played competitive basketball outside of a big loss to Tulsa, as the remainder of their eight games shows them not losing any of them by more than 9 points. They have held their own at 4-5 since the dreadful opener. Chicago has opened things up with Elena Delle Donne in the fold, as she has become the leading scorer at 19.5 points per game. The Sky are posting over 82 ppg and it is no secret that they like to run the floor. The Sky, however, is in the middle of the pack when it comes to defense, and that is going to help Seattle stay close here. The Storm have been an under-the-radar 7-1 ATS on a single day of rest in their last eight, and have more than held their own vs. a winning team where they are 6-1 ATS in their last seven. The Sky have played 8-2-1 to the OVER in their last 11 following a win. Make the play on Seattle and the OVER.
