A pair of struggling offensive teams clash. Los Angeles has the second-worst offense (78.6 ppg) on a 7-3 run UNDER the total. L.A. is also the second-worst in field goal shooting (42.2%) and ninth from long range (32.1%). At least the defense is better under coach Curt Miller, ranked fifth in the league in points allowed. Los Angeles is 8-2 UNDER the total against teams that allow 44% shooting or worse. Indiana has been without second-leading scorer NaLyssa Smith (15.6 ppg) for four weeks (foot injury) on a 7-2-1 run UNDER the total. They're tenth in the WNBA from long range (32%) and eighth from the charity stripe (79.1%). Indiana is 34-19 UNDER the total against defenses that allow 46% shooting or more. These teams met twice two weeks ago in a back-to-back series with both games sailing UNDER and this total is too high. Take Los Angeles/Indiana UNDER the total.
