Storm Becoming The Hottest OVER Bet In Sports

The Seattle Storm have come crashing down to earth after a great opening to the season. However, astute bettors who have kept an eye on the Storm have realized they have been one of the best bets in all of sports. The OVER is 10-2 in Storm games this season and has hit in three of the past four.

As the season has drawn on, it has become clear that the Storm can only beat opponents by outscoring them. The defense does little in terms of contesting shots, which has them middling in terms of shooting percentage and 3-point percentage allowed, as well as blocks. In their past eight games, a span that has seen Seattle go 2-6 SU, the Storm have allowed an average of 84.4 ppg with opponents shooting 44.5 percent from the floor, numbers that would be considerably higher were it not for two games against the 1-15 San Antonio Stars. 

The defense has been constantly gutted in the paint with the Storm allowing far too many points from 2-point range. The Storm have plenty of big players to plug in down low but many of them are still relatively inexperienced at the pro level and haven’t developed the defensive game to match their natural size. Overall, Seattle tends to run a guard-heavy lineup with four of its top six players in minutes coming in under the six-foot threshold.

What they give up in size down low, the Storm tend to make up with their outside shooting ability. The Storm score the most points in the league from beyond the arc and hit at the fourth-best clip.

All of this means that there is a high likelihood that the Storm continue to be an OVER bet to watch. Opposing bigs torch this team down low — and there are a lot of talented centers in the WNBA right now — while the offense can keep up thanks to the deep ball.
