The Indiana Fever look to keep rolling after winning seven of their last 10 games.

Layshia Clarendon is questionable with a concussion.
The Dream are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Eastern Conference and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games following a ATS win. The Fever are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Friday games. The over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
The Dream have had five days off to get their head straight. The Dream are also coming off a game against the Mercury in which they lost by one bucket. Sure, the Fever are hot and playing great at home, but this is too many points to lay for me.
