The Indiana Fever look for a win to build on their four-game winning streak. The Indiana Fever are averaging 79 points on 43.5 percent shooting and are allowing 78.3 points on 43.6 percent shooting. Marissa Coleman is averaging 13.3 points and 4.3 rebounds while Tamika Catchings is averaging 13.3 points and 7.1 rebounds. Shenise Johnson is the third double-digit scorer and Lynetta Kizer is grabbing 3.2 rebounds. The Indiana Fever have scored 80 or more points in five of their last eight games and are shooting 37.8 percent from beyond the arc. The Fever are starting to play more consistent ball now that their offense has picked up as of late. The Fever are 4-4 SU on their home court this season and have won three straight at home.
The Shock are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Eastern Conference and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games. The Fever are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games following a S.U. win and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games. The Shock are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Even though the Shock got Sims back, the Fever have picked things up lately on the offensive end and have won three straight at home. I like Indiana to get the job done and cover the small number.
