The Connecticut Sun and Indiana Fever meet Sunday in WNBA action at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The Connecticut Sun could use a feel good victory here in order to snap a four-game losing streak. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 88.8 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 81.4 points on 42.1 percent shooting. Chiney Ogwumike is averaging 15.4 points and 7.6 rebounds while Jasmine Thomas is averaging 14.8 points and 4.8 assists. Courtney Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Alyssa Thomas is grabbing 9.9 rebounds. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 33.2 percent from beyond the arc and 73.6 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 34.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.2 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have lost four of their last five road games.
The Indiana Fever also need a win here to rebound from a rough 1-12 start to the WNBA season. The Indiana Fever are averaging 75.5 points on 39.8 percent shooting and allowing 82.1 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 16.2 points and 2.4 assists while Candice Dupree is averaging 12.9 points and 6.5 rebounds. Tiffany Mitchell is dishing 3.2 assists and Natalie Achonwa is gabbing 7.9 rebounds. The Indiana Fever are shooting 29.9 percent from beyond the arc and 79.8 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Fever are allowing 32.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.2 rebounds per game. The Indiana Fever have lost five of their last six home games.
The Sun are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Fever are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Sunday games, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Sun are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Indiana Fever may have the worst record by far in the league and aren't playing well as a whole, but they hang around much more than you'd think and have covered five of their last seven games. Despite the losses, the Fever are only being outscored by two points in their last five games. The Connecticut Sun aren't the same team that they were earlier in the season and are getting drilled defensively as of late, allowing 87.4 points in their last five games. There's better options on Sunday's loaded card, but if forced to pick, I'd side with the Fever and the points at home.
