Offense Has Lacked Between The Sparks & Fever This Season

Sparks vs Fever WNBA Odds: Another Low-Scoring Game In The Cards

It’s been a tough start to the season for the Los Angeles Sparks and Indiana Fever. These two teams have combined to go 2-10 to begin the year.

While the Fever have played seven games, they’ve only got one win. Ironically enough, that one win came against the Sparks on the road, 78-73.

That was ultimately Caitlin Clark’s best game of the season. While the No. 1 overall pick added only 11 points on 4-for-14 from the field, she also totaled ten rebounds and eight assists in the win.

There’s a lot on Clark’s shoulders. But as the season progresses, she’ll start to settle in. After all, Clark still leads the Fever in points with 15.4 points per game in 31.9 minutes of game action.

That said, the Fever are -6 against the spread at home for this one. Meanwhile, the total is currently sitting at 164.5.

Let’s fully break down the Sparks vs Fever WNBA odds for this potentially epic showdown.

Sparks vs Fever WNBA Odds & Trends

To open up the season, the Los Angeles Sparks are just 1-3-1 against the spread this year. They’ve underperformed to begin the season, especially after going 1-4 outright.

On the other hand, the Fever are just 1-6, but they’ve gone 4-3 against the spread. Indiana has also hit the Over in four of their first seven games, while the Sparks have nailed the Over in three of five games to begin the season.

In the previous head-to-head matchup, the Fever defeated the Sparks as 1.5-point favorites on the road. However, the Under 165.5 hit in the 78-73 final.

Cameron Brink’s Development

Brink and the Los Angeles Sparks fell to the Dallas Wings, 84-83, at home after a rally in the fourth quarter fell short.

Brink, one of the top selections in this year’s WNBA Draft, added 21 points on 7-for-12 from the field. However, she still had five fouls and only hauled in two rebounds in the loss.

Still, Brink added 21 points in just 24 minutes and even hit three three-pointers. Brink will become a WNBA star in the next couple of years if she can stay out of foul trouble and consistently succeed on the glass.

Aliyah Boston Is Off Social Media

After a rough start to the 2024 WNBA season, Aliyah Boston told the media she logged off social media because “there are a lot of couch coaches.”

The former No. 1 overall pick didn’t score more than 12 points in five consecutive games before adding 17 points against the Sparks. However, she returned to just 12 points against the Aces in Indiana’s most recent game.

The Fever might need a third No. 1 overall pick next year to finally improve in the WNBA Standings

Another Low-Scoring Game

The Indiana Fever have many fans now that Caitlin Clark is on the roster. However, they’ve only won one game this season, and it was on the road.

Indiana is likely to win its first home game of the season. But realistically, neither team looks good enough to be involved in the WNBA playoffs this season.

Ultimately, the Fever have struggled offensively this year. But they’ve also had a tough start to the WNBA schedule. That said, Indiana has net points of -12.5 per game and has allowed 90 points per game to the opposition. Those are both league-worst numbers.

On the other hand, the Los Angeles Sparks have scored 77.8 points per game this season and have net points of -4.4. They’re 11th in points per 100 possessions offensively and have only hit 71.3% from the foul line this season.

Ultimately, the Sparks have added .85 points per play, which ranks 10th in the WNBA to begin the season.

On defense, Los Angeles has held opponents to three-point rate of 28.4%. They’ve also limited teams to 56% of points from two and 16.3% from the foul line. Los Angeles’ defense has improved in many areas since the beginning of the year.

Meanwhile, the Sparks rank dead last in offensive rebounds per game and are third in the WNBA in defensive rebounds per game. They’re not going to get many second chances, but on misses, it’ll be hard for the Fever to take advantage of second-chance points.

There also won’t be many steals in this game, which will limit fastbreak opportunities. The Fever are dead last in steals per game, and the Sparks are 11th.

Therefore, after looking at the Sparks vs Fever WNBA odds, we’ll back the Under 164.5 for this game. Neither team reached 80 last time, and we’d be shocked if both teams got to 80 tonight.
