I have no idea what's going on with the Fever, but they're not the same team they've been in the past. The Fever are struggling big time on the defensive end, and that's not good going up against a Chicago Sky team that can downright put the ball in the hoop at a high percentage.
Give me the home team to win this by double digits.
