The Fever are 8-3-2 ATS in their last 13 Thursday games, 6-18 ATS in their last 24 home games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Wings are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Indiana, 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Indiana.
The Dallas Wings have cooled off big time in terms of victories, and I'm not laying decent sized chalk with them given their recent results. However, the Fever have been fade material all season long and you've made a nice profit just blindly fading them over the last month. I'm backing the over here, as the Wings rarely play in unders, as the total has gone over in 12 of their last 17 games. The Fever have seen overs in nine of their last 12 home games. The last five games for the Wings are averaging 185 points. Yeah, give me the over on this small total.
