The Atlanta Dream and Indiana Fever meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Atlanta Dream could use a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 69.7 points on 36.9 percent shooting and allowing 78.6 points on 41.5 percent shooting. Tiffany Hayes is averaging 13.6 points and 3.1 rebounds while Brittney Sykes is averaging 11.4 points and 2.7 assists. Renee Montgomery is dishing 2.9 assists and Elizabeth Williams is grabbing 6.2 rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 28 percent from beyond the arc and 76.4 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 33.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.2 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream have lost their last four road games.

The Indiana Fever also need a win here to snap a six-game losing streak. The Indiana Fever are averaging 77.2 points on 42.2 percent shooting and allowing 80.3 points on 42.1 percent shooting. Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 12.8 points and 2.2 assists while Erica Wheeler is averaging 12.3 points and 2.7 rebounds. Candice Dupree is the third double-digit scorer and Tiffany Mitchell is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Indiana Fever are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 80.4 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Fever are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.2 rebounds per game. The Indiana Fever have lost their last eight home games.

The Dream are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games, 20-43 ATS in their last 63 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Fever are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 3 or more days rest, 7-21 ATS in their last 28 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Dream are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Indiana and the over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Fever last 5 Wednesday games. The under is 4-1-1 in Dream last 6 overall.

Neither of these teams are teams you should make a habit of getting behind, but if forced to pick, I’d lean toward the Fever and the reasonable line because they’re at home. If the Fever are going to snap this home losing skid, it would be here and the Dream haven’t done much on the road lately that suggests they can put together a winning performance. This is a real crap show of a game between two of the worst teams in the league, but the Fever have the edge because of home court.

Pick:
Indiana Fever -3.5
