The Storm made their way to the top of the ladder last week but we know that the Warriors have already beaten them this year. This time the Warriors get the opportunity to do it in front of their home crowd. Their form line has been like chalk and cheese over their past 8 games having posted 5 straight wins before following it up with 3 straight losses.
Mike’s Best Bet: None
