The Los Angeles Sparks and Indiana Fever meet Friday in WNBA action at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The Indiana Fever need a victory here after losing five of their last six games.

Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 14.4 points and 2.4 assists while Candice Dupree is averaging 12.2 points and 6.2 rebounds.

The Fever are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 17-35-2 ATS in their last 54 home games. The Sparks are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Indiana and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Fever last 7 home games. The over is 4-1 in Sparks last 5 overall.
The Los Angeles Sparks haven't been good on the road and lost Parker in their last game, but there's still enough talent for them to beat a Fever team that's back to struggling offensively and piling up the losses. The Sparks have won seven of the last 10 meetings against the Fever and ar still winning their last five games by an average of 6.4 points. I need more points to consider the Fever, so give me LA on the road.
