The over is 27-11 in Lynx last 38 road games. The over is 4-1 in Fever last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Indiana and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
This line doesn't make much sense, as the Minnesota Lynx are playing their best ball of the season and in the thick of a playoff race, while the Indiana Fever have lost 7 straight games and look like a team that's ready for the season to end. The only reason to be cautious about the Lynx here is they are on the end of a back to back and coming off a hard fought game against the Wings. Other than that, though, the Lynx have to be the play here. The Indiana Fever are fade material until further notice.
