The Indiana Fever look to remain hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Indiana Fever are averaging 78.2 points on 42.1 percent shooting and allowing 76 points on 44.5 percent shooting. Tamika Catchings is averaging 12.9 points and 6.8 rebounds while Marissa Coleman is averaging 11.7 points and 3.6 rebounds. Shenise Johnson is the third double-digit scorer and Lynetta Kizer is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The Indiana Fever have lost just one home game since July and are still within reach of the top seed in the East. The Fever are 9-5 SU on their home court and have won five of their last six. Erlana Larkins is questionable with a leg injury.
The Dream are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest and 20-9 ATS in their last 29 Friday games. The Fever are 35-16 ATS in their last 51 games playing on 1 days rest and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Dream are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Dream are starting to click again and playing with far more consistency as of late. While the Fever have been one of the hotter teams in the WNBA lately, they are coming off a surprising loss to the Shock. With all that said, I like the points here.
