Fever vs Sun WNBA Betting Predictions
The Indiana Fever can only hope to end a horrendous skid when they host the Eastern Conference-leading Connecticut Sun for a pair of games this week. Let’s see how this Fever vs Sun WNBA clash is going to pan out!
HISTORY: The Sun have won five of the last six matchups
Fever Continue to Struggle
Indiana (1-15) has endured a rough season so far. They have loss eleven straight games, and they’re struggling on both sides of the ball. They need solutions, really soon, hopefully before Fever vs Sun match.
Indiana is led by the inside-outside pairing of Kelsey Mitchell and Teaira McCowan. Mitchell leads the team in scoring at 16.1 points per game, and she’s coming off of a 24-point performance against Dallas. McCowan scores 10.5 ppg, and she’s grown into one of the best rebounders in the league, ranking fourth with 8.6 rpg. She’s recorded five double-doubles so far this season.
Sixth-year guard Tiffany Mitchell averages 10.8 ppg, while newcomer Danielle Robinson scores 8.7 ppg, and leads the Fever in assists (3.4). Veteran forward Jessica Breland joins McCowan up front, and she’s recorded a pair of double-doubles this season.
Sun Shining As of Late
Connecticut (11-5) responded to a three-game losing streak by ripping off three straight wins. They will likely make it five straight if they can maintain form coming into Fever vs Sun clash!
Star forward Jonquel Jones’ return to the lineup was an instant boost in the 90-71 win over the Mystics. The MVP candidate missed five games, and that, along with head coach Curt Miller stepping away from the team, led to three straight defeats for Connecticut.
After electing to sit out last season due to COVID-19, Jones is averaging 21.7 ppg, and a league-leading 10.9 rpg. Fifth-year center Brionna Jones joins her up front, and she’s averaging career highs of 14.4 ppg and 6.7 rpg.
Veteran guard DeWanna Bonner continues to be a steady two-way presence in year 12. She’s averaging 16.1 ppg, 7.4 rpg, and a career-best 3.8 apg. Former Duke guard Jasmine Thomas runs the offense, and she averages 12.5 ppg while leading the Sun in assists (4.0).
Players to Watch
The 2x WNBA All-Star returned on Tuesday and put up 23 points, and a season-high 16 rebounds in a blowout win over fellow MVP candidate Tina Charles and the Washington Mystics. She should terrorize Indiana during this back-to-back.
The third-year center has been one of the few bright spots for an underwhelming Fever team this season. If she avoids foul trouble she can impact this game on both sides of the ball. She’s recorded four double-doubles so far this season.
Fever vs Sun Prediction & Pick
The Connecticut Sun have endured an eventful month of June, but the Eastern Conference leaders appear to be back in form. The Indiana Fever have endured a troubling season, and things aren’t likely to get better here.
They lost every game last month, and six of them were by double figures. Look for the Sun to keep things going with a pair of victories to start the month. Bet on Connecticut to win, and cover the spread.
