The Minnesota Lynx and Indiana Fever meet Wednesday in WNBA action at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Maya Moore is averaging 18.9 points and 2.5 assists while Sylvia Fowles is averaging 17.3 points and 11.9 rebounds. Seimone Augustus is the third double-digit scorer and Rebekkah Brunson is grabbing 7.3 rebounds.

The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 31 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.3 rebounds per game. The Minnesota Lynx have won four of their last six road games.
The Indiana Fever could use a feel good victory here to rebound from a rough 2-17 record. The Indiana Fever are averaging 75.9 points on 40.8 percent shooting and allowing 83.5 points on 46.1 percent shooting. Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 14.4 points and 2.5 assists while Candice Dupree is averaging 13 points and 6.5 rebounds. Cappie Pondexter is the third double-digit scorer and Natalie Achonwa is gabbing 7.2 rebounds.

The Indiana Fever are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33 rebounds per game. The Indiana Fever have lost nine of their last 10 home games.
The Lynx are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 3 or more days rest, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference. The Fever are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 3 or more days rest, 2-9 ATS in their last 11 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings in Indiana and 7-2 in the last 9 meetings.
The Indiana Fever have been awful all season long, but they're only being outscored by 7.5 points on the season and 6.4 points at home. It could be a lot worse given their record. The Fever also just beat the Lynx by 12 points last week despite being 14 point underdogs. The Lynx are being outscored by 0.6 points on the road this season and have an even point differential in their last five games. The Minnesota Lynx have failed to cover their last four games as a double-digit favorite and the Indiana Fever are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games as a double-digit underdog. For all three games on Wednesday morning, give me the points.
