The Indiana Fever and Connecticut Sun meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the Mohegan Sun Arena.
The Indiana Fever need a feel good victory here to rebound from a brutal 1-13 record. The Indiana Fever are averaging 75.7 points on 40.2 percent shooting and allowing 82.4 points on 45.8 percent shooting. Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 15.9 points and 2.5 assists while Candice Dupree is averaging 13.1 points and 6.7 rebounds. Tiffany Mitchell is the third double-digit scorer and Natalie Achonwa is gabbing 7.9 rebounds. The Indiana Fever are shooting 30.7 percent from beyond the arc and 79.9 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Fever are allowing 33.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.6 rebounds per game. The Indiana Fever haven’t won a road game since July 19.
The Connecticut Sun could use a feel good victory here after losing five of their last six games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 88.7 points on 45.4 percent shooting and allowing 81.2 points on 42.4 percent shooting. Chiney Ogwumike is averaging 15.2 points and 7.8 rebounds while Jasmine Thomas is averaging 14.1 points and 4.7 assists. Courtney Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Alyssa Thomas is grabbing 9.9 rebounds. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc and 73.9 percent from the free throw line.

The Fever are 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 games playing on 2 days rest and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Sun are 23-9-2 ATS in their last 34 Wednesday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Fever are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Once again, the Indiana Fever are a team that doesn't win a lot of games but doesn't get blown out either and has provided value betting on them. Yes, the Fever have won just one game, but they're only being outscored by 6.7 points on the season. The Connecticut Sun aren't the same team they werre earlier in the season, are on the end of a back-to-back and are still dealing with the injury to Alyssa Thomas. I have to take my points here.
