The Indiana Fever look to keep rolling after winning five of their last seven games. The Indiana Fever are averaging 76.3 points on 42.3 percent shooting and are allowing 77.9 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Tamika Catchings is averaging 12.9 points and seven rebounds while Marissa Coleman is averaging 12.1 points and 3.7 rebounds. Shenise Johnson is the third double-digit scorer and Natalie Achonwa is grabbing four rebounds. The Indiana Fever are coming off a Tuesday win over the Connecticut Sun in which they shot 40.7 percent from the field. The Fever are 8-3 SU when scoring 75 or more points. The Fever are 5-4 SU on their home court, which includes four straight victories.
The Liberty are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games. The Fever are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
This is a tough game to cap considering the teams split both games in June, and the Liberty are coming off a long rest while the Fever just played an overtime game on Tuesday. However, in a toss up game, I'm giving the slight edge to the home team. However, the best bet may be to avoid this one all together, as there's no strong lean either way.
