Those who have followed me over the years know I'm not the guy who just throws out big numbers and backs favorites all the time. I try to make a case for the underdog in most games due to the value. However, the Indiana Fever have been downright awful in all four games this season and it hasn't improved one bit from game to game. The Connecticut Sun are getting whatever they want offensively and are looking like a team on a mission to prove they're a sneaky title contender. If both teams hold their current form, the Sun will win this game by a massive number.
