Going into next match in the WNBA, we will take a look at Atlanta Dream travelling to Seattle to face off against Seattle Storm.
Seattle Storm are currently at 4th position in the West with an overall record of 5-4, which is not the best but the season has barely started so we have a lot more to see from them. As of now, Seattle is struggling with a 2 game losing streak against Indiana Fever (83:80) and New York Liberty (94:86). As far as we have seen, Seattle is not performing well in away games as they won only 1 out of 4 played, on the other side they are playing well at home (4-1). This is something their opponents must take into consideration as the only team that has been able to beat Seattle on their home court up until now was Minnesota Lynx, who is still a strong favourite to win the league.
The visiting team Atlanta Dream are currently at 3rd position in the East with an overall record of 4-4. Much like Seattle, Atlanta does not shine in away games (2-3), but it’s hard to call them “bad travellers” as only 5 away games were played up until now. Looking at their current run, Atlanta Dream is on a 3 game losing streak. They failed to win against Washington Mystic (78:72), New York Liberty (76:71) and Connecticut Sun (104:71). This is without a say a run they need to break, but it just might not be that easy as Seattle has been putting up some good performances at home.
Looking at H2H matches between these two teams, they come off as relatively equal, so we cannot call out a favourite solely at looking at historical trends, but in my eyes, Seattle has an upper hand in tonight’s match due to their superb performance in front of their crowd. Pick Seattle to win this one with 9 points to spare.
Prediction: Seattle Storm -9 points
Odds: 2.00 Pinnacle
