Candice Dupree is averaging 14.9 points and 5.4 rebounds while Erica Wheeler is averaging 11.5 points and 3.9 assists.

The Lynx are 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 games following a straight up loss, 24-7-1 ATS in their last 32 games following a ATS loss and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games. The Fever are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Indiana and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
You guys know I don't lay big numbers often, but the Lynx doubled up the Fever in the last meeting, and Indiana hasn't played any better since that contest. In fact, the Fever are being outscored by 22 points and getting outshot by eight percent in their last five games. No, thank you. Have to take the Lynx in a blowout here as a fade from the Fever more than anything.
