The Indiana Fever and Minnesota Lynx meet Tuesday in WNBA action at the Target Center.

The Indiana Fever could use a nice roa upset here to rebound from a brutal 1-16 record. The Indiana Fever are averaging 77 points on 41.3 percent shooting and allowing 84.5 points on 46.9 percent shooting. Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 15.2 points and 2.5 assists while Candice Dupree is averaging 12.9 points and 6.5 rebounds. Victoria Vivians is dishing 1.4 assists and Natalie Achonwa is gabbing 7.2 rebounds. The Indiana Fever are shooting 32.5 percent from beyond the arc and 81.1 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Fever are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.1 rebounds per game. The Indiana Fever haven’t won a road game since July 19.

The Minnesota Lynx look to keep the ball rolling while building on their seven-game winning streak. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 81.1 points on 45.3 percent shooting and allowing 78 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Maya Moore is averaging 20.4 points and 2.5 assists while Sylvia Fowles is averaging 17.8 points and 12.3 rebounds. Seimone Augustus is the third double-digit scorer and Rebekkah Brunson is grabbing 6.7 rebounds. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 79.6 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 30.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36 rebounds per game. The Minnesota Lynx have won four straight home games.

The Fever are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 Tuesday games, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Lynx are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Fever are 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Minnesota and the under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.

We know the Indiana Fever are an awful basketball team, while the Minnesota Lynx are the favorites to win the title and are playing their best basketball at the moment. However, 16 points is a ton of free buckets to pass up. Despite the Fever losing 16 of their last 17, they're only being outscored by 7.5 points on the season. It's not like the Fever are losing by 30 on a nighly basis. The Indiana Fever have also covered seven of their last 10 games as a double-digit underdog. The Minnesota Lynx are 0-2 ATS this season as a double-digit favorite and have faled to cover their last three games overall as a double-digit favorite. If betting this game, I want the truckload of points in my pocket.

Indiana Fever +16
