The Stars are 20-9 ATS in their last 29 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Fever are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 2 days rest and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games. The Stars are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Indiana, 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Indiana.
We have two teams on losing streaks and their last game of the season with both clubs out of the playoff race. So, this game is all about who has more pride and wants to end the year on a high note. Good luck finding an edge here. I'm going to back the Fever and the small line because they're at home and the fact the Stars are on the end of a rare back-to-back. This is a game the Fever should win, but who knows when neither team has anything to play for.
