Indiana Fever – Tulsa Shock
I see quite good chances for Indiana to cover handicap tonight.
Tulsa will play its 4th away game in 6 nights and I expect them to be emotionally empty after OT-win in Chicago. Also it is a big question yet how Tulsa offense will be able to score against solid Indiana defense (at this moment best in WNBA). So far Tulsa played against teams, which are playing bad defense and that helped Tulsa a lot to win games with offense. But what about defense? Tulsa owns worst defense in WNBA league, but they played against great offensive teams…
Indiana after loss to Minnesota returns home where they never lost to Tulsa. This year however there is no such margin in roster strength, but for me Indiana still a little bit better team. Also they have experience and great home record while Tulsa is worst away team in the league for many years.
I expect Indiana defense to give a lesson to Tulsa offense and this should help Indiana to beat Tulsa by more than 6 points.
Pick: Indiana Fever (-4.5) @ 1.95 7/10 Pinnacle
