The Sparks are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest. The Storm are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 home games and 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The under is 15-7 in Sparks last 22 overall. The over is 4-1 in Storm last 5 home games. The Sparks are 2-8 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Seattle and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Seattle Storm are the better team, but their offense has yet to get off the ground, and they're still adjusting to playing with a complete roster. The Storm have had players in and out of the lineup and their offense just isn't gelling at the moment. The Los Angeles Sparks have been hit or miss, but they've been competitive in every game and could easily have a couple more wins on their resume. I need to see the Sparks put it together before I lay this sort of chalk. Give me the Sparks and the free buckets.
