Will update with trends once they're released.
The Dallas Wings won the first meeting against the Fever back in late July, but they're a different team than they were back then and the injuries are starting to pile up. The Indiana Fever have had trouble finishing games lately, but they did beat the Seattle Storm last week as massive underdogs and have been on the wrong side of some competitive losses. The Indiana Fever are the better team here no matter how you slice it, and they have a clear edge on the offensive end of the court. The Dallas Wings have serious issues scoring the basketball, and they're 11th in field goal percentage and 10th in three point percentage.
I'm leaning toward the Fever in this contest and will lay whatever the line is.
