Indiana at Seattle

1 unit on Seattle +105 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: WIN
The Indiana Fever were a surprise winner last year as they are the defending WNBA Champions. They sure didn't look like it out of the gate this season at an ugly 1-7. They turned things around, and now stand at 11-13, but it may be too late. They needed a big win last night in LA to establish themselves as a true threat, and not only came up short, they were blown out by 22 points. They can't be in a good place right now mentally. Despite their key losses, Seattle has always had a reputation as being ultra tough at home. They have certainly worn the home dog label well this season and lived up to the billing, as they are 4-1 ATS as a home dog on the season. The better part of that is they are 3-2 straight-up as a home dog, with one of the losses by a single point to LA. Seattle is in a good spot here, so the pick is Seattle on the moneyline.
