Indiana Fever vs. Connecticut Sun – In-Season Stats & Betting Trends

Can The Fever Extend Their Winning Streak To Two Games?

Indiana Fever Season Stats:

  • Scoring Offense: 78.0 PPG – 9TH
  • Offensive Rating: 98.5 Points Per 100 Possessions – 8TH
  • Scoring Defense: 89.8 PPG – 12TH
  • Defensive Rating: 113.5 Points Per 100 Possessions – 12TH 

The Indiana Fever had dropped nine of their first 11 games heading into their matchup against the Washington Mystics last Friday night. Not only that, but they also played 11 games in a 20-day span. Not the ideal way to start the season by any means.

In that contest, Caitlin Clark led the team’s scoring attack with 30 points on 8-for-15 shooting overall and an impressive 7-for-13 from beyond the arc. She also tallied eight rebounds, six assists and four steals in what was probably the best all-around performance of her young WNBA career. 

Kelsey Mitchell added 16 points, four rebounds, and three steals, while Aliyah Boston and NaLyssa Smith scored 10 points each. As fan interest in Clark continues, the Mystics hosted this contest at Capital One Arena instead of the stadium they usually play at home. The sellout crowd of 20,033 was the highest attendance for a game since 2007.

The Sun Looking To Bounce Back From First Loss Of The Season

Connecticut Sun Season Stats:

  • Scoring Offense: 79.7 PPG – 6TH
  • Offensive Rating: 104.4 Points Per 100 Possessions – 3RD
  • Scoring Defense: 70.6 PPG – 1ST
  • Defensive Rating: 92.5 Points Per 100 Possessions – 1ST  

Meanwhile, the Connecticut Sun had posted wins in each of their first nine games. Unfortunately, that streak ended with an 82-75 loss to the New York Liberty on Saturday night. 

Both teams overcame early double-digit deficits and battled to a 39-39 stalemate at the break. Fast forwarding to the fourth quarter, Connecticut trailed 76-72 before Tyasha Harris knocked down a three-pointer, to cut the deficit to 76-75 with 90 seconds left to play in regulation. New York responded with five consecutive points, courtesy of a 3-pointer from Jonquel Jones and a basket by Sabrina Ionescu, pushing the lead back to 81-75. 

Connecticut placed six players in double figures in this contest. DeWanna Bonner scored a team-high 16 points to go along with eight rebounds and three assists. 

Brionna Jones added 13 points and four rebounds, while Dijonai Carrington contributed 12 points and four rebounds. Despite the Sun’s recent setback against New York, look for the league’s top-ranked defensive team to get back into the win column against a Fever squad that is ranked last in both scoring defense and defensive efficiency. 

Now that we have set the stage for this Eastern Conference showdown, let’s examine the betting trends for both sides.

While most of the trends point to the “under” for Bonner, look for her to have a solid outing against a Fever squad that does not excel at the defensive end of the floor. 

Prediction: DeWanna Bonner OVER 19.5 points
