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 has hit in the Storm’s past seven games and eight of 10 on the season as a whole.

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 sitting near the bottom of the WNBA in shooting percentage and three-point percentage allowed. In their past five games, a span that has seen Seattle go 1-4 SU, they have allowed an average of 88.8 ppg with opponents shooting 47.5 percent from the floor.

The defense has been constantly gutted in the paint with the Storm allowing more points inside the arc than any other team in the league. 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 their top six players in minutes coming 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 second-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 continues 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.

The Storm are off until Sunday, June 18 when they host the winless San Antonio Stars. These two teams met once already this season, a game that the Storm won 85-76, in a game that just finished OVER.
