The San Antonio Stars need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The San Antonio Stars are averaging 70.4 points on 40.5 percent shooting and are allowing 77.4 points on 45.1 percent shooting. Sophia Young-Malcolm is averaging 13.1 points and 4.8 rebounds while Danielle Robinson is averaging 11.2 points and 4.9 assists. Dearica Hamby is grabbing 5.8 rebounds and Sydney Colson is dishing 2.6 assists. The San Antonio Stars continue to struggle offensively, scoring 70 or less points in four of their last six games and shooting just 26.5 percent from beyond the arc. Of course, it would help if two of their top scorers weren’t injured. All four of the Stars victories this season have come on their home court.
The Fever are 15-4 ATS in their last 19 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Stars are 13-5 ATS in their last 18 vs. Eastern Conference and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 Tuesday games. The Fever are 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings in San Antonio.
Although the Fever are the better team, there's value with the Stars at home and the free bucket. After all, the Stars have won their last four home games. I like San Antonio in this spot.
