The Indiana Fever have actually played better basketball as of late and are outscoring teams by 1.8 points in their last five games. I'm still not trusting them on the road against one of the best teams in the league. Instead, I'm taking the over. This total seems way too low. The Fever are averaging 82.6 points in their last five games and have seen the over go over seven times in their last 10 tries. The Sparks have yet to play their best basketball this season despite their victories and have scored no less than 80 points in their last eight games against the Fever. Give me the over.
