The Indiana Fever and Dallas Wings meet Friday in WNBA action at the College Park Center.
The Indiana Fever need a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Indiana Fever are averaging 78.1 points on 42.5 percent shooting and allowing 80.1 points on 41.7 percent shooting. Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 15.1 points and 2.4 assists while Erica Wheeler is averaging 12.8 points and 5.7 assists. Candice Dupree is the third double-digit scorer and Natalie Achonwa is grabbing 5.3 rebounds. The Indiana Fever are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 82.3 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Fever are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.7 rebounds per game. The Indiana Fever have lost five of their last seven road games.
The Dallas Wings look to stay hot after winning four of their last six games. The Dallas Wings are averaging 70.5 points on 37.8 percent shooting and allowing 74.2 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Arike Ogunbowale is averaging 13.2 points and 2.2 rebounds while Kayla Thornton is averaging 11.8 points and 1.9 assists. Allisha Gray is the third double-digit scorer and Theresa Plaisance is grabbing 4.4 rebounds. The Dallas Wings are shooting 29.1 percent from beyond the arc and 81.9 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 31.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.4 rebounds per game. The Dallas Wings have won their last four home games.
The Fever are 8-17 ATS in their last 25 games following a straight up loss, 6-13 ATS in their last 19 vs. Western Conference and 9-25 ATS in their last 34 games following a ATS win. The Wings are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games, 4-12 ATS in their last 16 vs. Eastern Conference and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Fever are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The under is 9-2 in Wings last 11 overall. The over is 11-5 in Fever last 16 overall.
The Dallas Wings don't have the offense to blow teams out and cover chalk much, but they're playing better basketball than the Fever right now. The Fever are shooting just 40.5 percent from the field in their last five games and losing those contests by an average of 5.6 points. The Fever are losing on the road by an average of five points. While the Wings games are usually close due to a physical grinding style, I'll lay the bucket in this spot, as I'm not thrilled with the Fever at this moment.
