Fever Betting Preview
The Fever come into this game with a 6-17 record overall and they have to be disappointed they weren’t able to secure a victory on Tuesday. Being outscored by nine points in the second quarter really hurt their chance to win the game. The Fever were led by Kelsey Mitchell who finished with 19 points, four rebounds, and two assists. There were three different players that finished with at least 15 points. The Fever are averaging 82 points while their defense is giving up 85.9 points per game. The offense is ranked 6th while the defense is ranked 11th. Kelsey Mitchell has been the top player for the Fever averaging 16.7 points while shooting 42.2 percent from the field and 36.6 percent from behind the three point line. In this game they are going to need four or five players to finish with at least 10 points.
Sparks Betting Preview
The Sparks sit with an 8-15 record overall and they were able to make shots late on Tuesday to secure the win. It was a big second quarter where they outscored the Fever 27-16 and that really gave them a chance. Nneka Ogwumike had a strong game finishing with 30 points and eight rebounds. Jordin Canada finished with 20 points, 10 rebounds, and four assists. The Sparks are averaging 78.4 points while their defense is giving up 82.3 points per game. The offense is ranked 9th while the defense is ranked 4th. Nneka Ogwumike is averaging 20.1 points while shooting 51.4 percent from the field and 34.1 percent from behind the three point line. Ogwumike has been an x-factor this season, and she’s going to need to show out again here.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Fever kept the first game close, and I think they can actually win this game outright. Indiana isn’t going to have that bad quarter like they did on Tuesday. The Fever have enough offense to find success here, and that is going to be the difference as the Fever are going to get the job done. Back Indiana against the spread.
