The Mercury are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Fever are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 7-3 in Mercury last 10 road games. The under is 5-1 in Fever last 6 overall. The Mercury are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Indiana and 12-4 ATS in the last 16 meetings.
The Phoenix Mercury have yet to play to their full potential, and it doesn't help that they're on the end of a back to back here. Third straight road game and second straight game overall, we could easily see the Mercury fall flat on their face. With that said, the Indiana Fever are one of the worst teams in the league, they can't score consistently, and they've won back-to-back games just once this season. I'm not ready to give up on the Mercury, given the talent and experience on the roster. In a near pick em spot, I'll still side with the Mercury.
