The Indiana Fever also are in need of a victory after an 0-8 start to the WNBA season. The Indiana Fever are averaging 76.1 points on 40.6 percent shooting and allowing 85.5 points on 46.5 percent shooting. Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 19.4 points and 2.4 assists while Candice Dupree is averaging 14 points and 7.7 rebounds.

The Indiana Fever are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.8 rebounds per game. The Indiana Fever haven’t won a home game since August 6.
The Aces are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up loss, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference. The Fever are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. The Aces are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Indiana, 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Indiana Fever shouldn't be favored against anybody with the way they've played this season. However, the Las Vegas Aces haven't been much better and are actually being outscored by more points on average this season. On the road this season, Las Vegas is being outscored by nearly 16 points and allowing 88.8 points. I just can't take the Aces with those numbers. If the Fever are going to win a game any time soon, it's here. I'll lay the bucket.
