Detroit at Indiana
Tuesday 09/23 03:05 PM Eastern
3 units on Indiana -8.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Detroit became a team like a fat cat - content off their road win in game 1 over Indiana, and came home relaxed thinking the series was over with two games in Detroit. Well, they ended up losing in OT, so you can bet they will be focused and this game will get their attention. When focused, the Shock has this game in their pocket as they were 11-0 during the regular season against the Eastern Conference, including a complete dismantling of this Indiana team on September 5, where they won by 22 points. Indiana is in the playoffs by default, with a mediocre 17-17 regular season mark and poor road showing at 6-11. The Fever left it all on the floor in game 2 to get here, while Detroit is the much better team with a lot left in the tank and they will finish the job at home in this one.
