The Fever are 17-8-1 ATS in their last 26 games following a ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Mystics are 5-1-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Indiana, 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the under is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
Washington blew the doors off Indiana about a month ago and has had a lot of success against the Fever overall, but this is a lot of points for a Mystics team that's struggled on the road, which includes allowing 83.6 points. Five of the Fever's seven wins have come at home, where they're shooting 46.1 percent from the field. I'll go ahead and side with the points here.
