The Fever are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record. The Mystics are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Fever are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Washington.
The Fever don't look like the team from last year as they continue to struggle to find their footing. The Washington Mystics finally just won their first home game and know they need to protect home court if they're going to make a run in the playoffs. Washington should be able to cover this small number at home against a struggling Indiana club.
