The Indiana Fever are the best defensive team in the WNBA allowing 71ppg. The LA Spark have scored well at home this season at nearly 80ppg, but have really been slowed down on the road, where they score 73.6ppg. Those 73.6ppg will be hard to come by in this one and here is why. The WNBA has 4 teams that allow under 75ppg, and the rest of the teams simply don't put the effort into the defensive end. The Spark's problem is this. They have played on the road 4 times against the WNBA's top 4 defenses, all of which allow more than Indiana, and they have averaged just 62ppg! That means Indiana has to touch 90 in this one, if the Spark can even get to their road average against the good defensive teams in the league. Indiana in their last 33 home games have scored 91 points just 2 times, they are not a fastbreak team, they play half-court offense and tough defense. This one will struggle to reach a number that is simply too high, and I'll play the under here.
