Kelsey Mitchell is averaging 16 points and 2.4 assists while Candice Dupree is averaging 12.6 points and 6.5 rebounds.

The Dream are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 9-19 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The Fever are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games, 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Dream are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Indiana, 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the under is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
The home team has won each of the last eight meetings between the Dream and Fever, and Atlanta is being outscored by 7.7 points on the road this season. This feels like a game the Fever can win. However, I don't know about you, but I'm not backing an Indiana team that's found ways to lose 15 of its last 16 games and hasn't been much better against the spread. Give me a truckload of points and I sometimes bite. Just a bucket, I'm fading the Fever every time until they learn how to finish games.
