Chicago at Indiana

1 unit on Indiana -1.5 (-108) (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: WIN
There's a reason they play the games: Upsets happen! Chicago got surprised in Game one as a seven-point favorite, losing to Indiana 85-72. The fact is this team hasn't been playing good basketball the last week, on a 1-5 ATS run now, with three straight up losses (twice as chalk). Indiana, the only team in the playoffs with a sub-.500 record during the regular season, went 10 for 16 from three-point range, and shot 50.8 percent overall in Game one. But don't be fooled by the regular season record: Indiana is the defending WNBA champion. The season-high 85-point output included five Indiana scorers in double figures, led by Shavonte Zellous with 20. Indiana's previous season high also came at Chicago in an 82-77 win Sept. 6th. The Indiana Fever is 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games playing on one days rest. They've also been a tough matchup for Chicago, the Sky are 7-20 ATS in the last 27 meetings, as well as 3-9 ATS in Chicago's last 12 meetings in Indiana. The Sky is 1-2 SU in Indiana this season, including a blow-out loss 79-58 in the most recent meeting there August 6. Play the Indiana Fever in Game two.
