The Minnesota Lynx and Indiana Fever meet Tuesday in WNBA action at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The Minnesota Lynx need a victory here to get a game above a .500 record. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 76.8 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 75.1 points on 43.4 percent shooting. Sylvia Fowles is averaging 14.8 points and 9.8 rebounds while Odyssey Sims is averaging 14.2 points and 4.7 assists. Napheesa Collier is the third double-digit scorer and Damiris Dantas is dishing 3.3 assists. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 33 percent from beyond the arc and 75.7 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 31.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.1 rebounds per game. The Minnesota Lynx have lost two of their last three road games.
The Indiana Fever could also use a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Indiana Fever are averaging 77.5 points on 43 percent shooting and allowing 77.4 points on 39.8 percent shooting. Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 14.5 points and 2.3 assists while Erica Wheeler is averaging 12.8 points and 5.9 assists. Candice Dupree is the third double-digit scorer and Tiffany Mitchell is grabbing 3.7 rebounds. The Indiana Fever are shooting 34.4 percent from beyond the arc and 83.7 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Fever are allowing 35.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.3 rebounds per game. The Indiana Fever have lost their last three home games.
The Lynx are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference. The Fever are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 vs. Western Conference, 7-19 ATS in their last 26 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Indiana and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Fever last 5 overall. The under is 22-4 in Lynx last 26 road games.
The Minnesota Lynx have made a living this season at home and have yet to put things together on the road, but the Indiana Fever are watching their season take a nosedive, and they're shooting just 38.6 percent from the field in their last five games. I don't want much to do with the Fever right now. The Lynx have also won eight of the last 10 meetings against the Fever. I'll lay the point with the better and more trustworthy team.
