The Indiana Fever and Atlanta Dream meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the State Farm Arena.
The Indiana Fever look for a strong road win to get a game above a .500 record. The Indiana Fever are averaging 79.8 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 78.6 points on 39.7 percent shooting. Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 15.8 points and 2.6 assists while Tiffany Mitchell is averaging 12.9 points and 4.5 rebounds. Natalie Achonwa is the third double-digit scorer and Candice Dupree is grabbing 7.1 rebounds. The Indiana Fever are shooting 34.6 percent from beyond the arc and 83.1 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Fever are allowing 37.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.9 rebounds per game. The Indiana Fever have won two of their last three road games.
The Atlanta Dream could use a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 67.7 points on 36.5 percent shooting and allowing 79.7 points on 41.5 percent shooting. Brittney Sykes is averaging 10.8 points and 2.2 assists while Tiffany Hayes is averaging 10.2 points and three rebounds. Elizabeth Williams is grabbing 6.3 rebounds and Jessica Breland is grabbing 6.7 rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 25 percent from beyond the arc and 72.3 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 31 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream have lost three straight home games.
The Fever are 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games following a ATS loss, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games and 9-20 ATS in their last 29 games overall. The Dream are 19-42 ATS in their last 61 games playing on 3 or more days rest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Atlanta. The under is 5-1 in Dream last 6 overall. The over is 7-3 in Fever last 10 overall.
Usually I'm going to favor the home team in an extremely early start, but the Dream haven't shown us anything in these last five games and are a train wreck offensively. The Indiana Fever have shown they can win on the road and have a lot more balance to their attack than they have in past years. These early games can be tricky due to sluggish play, but the Fever are easily the better team and getting them in a near toss-up has to be the play if forced to pick this contest.
