It's tough to cap this game because there's no line and there's no telling who is going to play for the Seattle Storm because of COVID-19 issues. Breanna Stewart is questionable for this contest, and that makes me assume she's not going to play until she's cleared for good. As long as those question marks remain in place for the Seattle Storm, I have to lean toward the Sky. The Storm are on the struggle bus right now, mainly offensively, and things won't improve until they get their star back. Assuming Stewart doesn't play, give me the Sky in a victory and cover over the projected line.
