Indiana at Phoenix
Wednesday 08/14 10:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Phoenix -4 (-105) (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: WIN
It hasn't been pretty for either of these teams this season, as more was expected from each. Despite all the injuries, these teams have kept themselves in contention. Phoenix is now the healthier of the two teams, and Indiana has some key pieces that will likely not be in the lineup tonight. Shavnte Zellous, and Katie Douglas contribute over 17 points per game each for the Fever, and Douglas is out and Zellous may play, but won't be at 100%. Phoenix has a healthy Britney Griner, and Diana Turasi to contend with. And without the scorers to counter, Indiana appears to be in trouble here for this one. The Fever have not been at their best on extended rest, as they are 2-7 ATS in their last nine on three or more days off. The Mercury have covered eight of their last 10, and have played over the line with their stars in tact. This one belongs to Phoenix.
