4 units on Indiana +4.5 (+100) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: LOSS
The Indiana Fever has been a tough team to figure out. They lost to Atlanta at home when they were playing good, went to Connecticut when Connecticut was ripping everyone apart and beat them by 29 points on the road! Just when you think this team isn't very good they pull a surprise and we have that feeling for this one, especially with Sacramento winning six straight. We expect them to come and play here and may catch Sacramento off guard thinking they have an easy one. History in this league is on our side. Favorites in the WNBA that have won at least three straight and are well rested, playing five games or less in 14 days, have been beaten ATS to the tune of 74-43 good for 63.2%. Our suspicions of being snuck up on by this Indiana team take on more meaning when you consider that WNBA teams that have won 2+ games, and have a winning record on the season, playing against a team with a losing record are getting beat ATS to the tune of 49-20, or 71% of the time. That is enough for us to back the Fever here.
