Indiana at Atlanta
Wednesday 09/04 07:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Game Total UNDER 144 -105 (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: LOSS
The Indiana Fever won it all last year, and after starting the season 1-7 they have rebounded nicely and hold a solid position for the fourth and final playoffs slot in the East. Atlanta has taken a much different path, as the Dream came out on fire by going 10-1 through their first 11 games. The Indiana turnaround has been achieved by their commitment to the defensive end. Through their 1-7 start, they held just one team to 70 points or less, but have since done so 13 times. Atlanta simply has not been the same team they were early in the season, and over their last five games they have been held to 68 points or less in three of them, and I expect that Indiana will make that four tonight. The Fever have been defensive with three or more days rest where they are 20-4-1 to the UNDER in their last 15, and four of the last five in this series played in Atlanta have failed to reach the total. This one stays UNDER.
