The Sun are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Fever are 10-24 ATS in their last 34 home games, 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Sun are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Indiana and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The over is 7-3-1 in Fever last 11 overall. The over is 4-0 in Sun last 4 overall.
The Connecticut Sun aren't nearly as good on the road as they are at home, but we're not being asked to lay many points with the far and away better team. The Sun have won nine of the last 10 meetings against the Fever and have covered each of the last four meetings. With neither team having anything to play for in this contest, I'll lay the bucket with the much, much better team.
