The Fever are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 35-17-2 ATS in their last 54 road games. The Sun are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Fever are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Sun are back in one of their slumps and now play a team that's beaten them seven of the last 10 meetings. The Fever also continue to play their best ball on the road. I have to side with the better and hotter team with the small line.
