The Connecticut Sun and Indiana Fever meet Sunday in WNBA action at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The Connecticut Sun look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 77.7 points on 40.8 percent shooting and allowing 76.1 points on 43.2 percent shooting. Jonquel Jones is averaging 15.1 points and 10.4 rebounds while Alyssa Thomas is averaging 12.2 points and 3.1 assists. Courtney Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Jasmine Thomas is dishing 5.4 assists. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 70.8 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 29.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.1 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have lost their last four road games.
The Indiana Fever also need a win after losing eight of their last 10 games. The Indiana Fever are averaging 77.9 points on 42.7 percent shooting and allowing 78.9 points on 40.9 percent shooting. Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 14 points and 2.5 assists while Erica Wheeler is averaging 12.1 points and 2.5 rebounds. Candice Dupree is the third double-digit scorer and Natalie Achonwa is grabbing 4.8 rebounds. The Indiana Fever are shooting 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 81 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Fever are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.2 rebounds per game. The Indiana Fever have lost their last six home games.
The Sun are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest, 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Fever are 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games playing on 1 days rest, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games and 6-20 ATS in their last 26 home games. The Sun are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Indiana and 8-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings. The over is 6-2 in Fever last 8 vs. Eastern Conference. The under is 4-1 in Sun last 5 overall.
The Connecticut Sun have won eight of the last nine meetings against the Fever and have covered eight of those games as well, but they're in awful form, which includes losing their last five games by an average of seven points and shooting 39.4 percent from the field. The Indiana Fever compete at home and have been on the wrong side of some tight games. I don't love this contest, but I'd lean toward the free points with the Fever, as backing the Sun on the road isn't an option right now.
