We've been fading the Indiana Fever and these big lines they get and it continues to pay off. The Fever are just an awful basketball team, and it showed Saturday when they were at home against these very Sky and found a way to lose in double overtime despite having a lead late. You can't trust these Fever regardless of what the line says. So, while there's better options on a loaded Sunday card, the Sky and the big chalk has to be the play.
