The Fever are 10-4-3 ATS in their last 17 Thursday games, 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games playing on 1 days rest and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Sparks are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Indiana and 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The over is 5-1-1 in Fever last 7 overall. The over is 6-2 in Sparks last 8 overall.
The Indiana Fever have played improved basketball as of late at home, but they're still losing their last five games by an average of 10.8 points. The Los Angeles Sparks also just beat the snot out of the Fever last week, 98-65, as 9.5-point favorites. The Sparks aren't the best team in the world on the road, but they should be able to cover this reasonable chalk.
