Indiana Fever at Chicago Sky – In-Season Stats & Betting Trends

Can The Fever Continue Its Dominance Over The Sky

After missing the playoffs the last seven seasons, the Fever entered the 2024 campaign, hoping to contend for a postseason berth. That sentiment seemed like a pipe dream, though, as the team dropped 10 of its first 13 games. Over the past week, however, Indiana’s stock is trending upward, courtesy of a season-high four-game winning streak.

This includes wins over the Sky and the Washington Mystics, bookended by a pair of wins over the Atlanta Dream. In the team’s recent 91-79 victory over Atlanta on Friday night, NaLyssa Smith erupted for a team-high 21 points and grabbed nine rebounds. She shot 10-for-17 from the field and had two blocked shots as well.

Kelsey Mitchell added 18 points, four rebounds, and three assists, while Caitlin Clark contributed 16 points, seven assists, and four rebounds. Indiana had a solid game at both ends of the floor. The team shot 56.9 percent overall and 52.4 percent from 3 while blocking seven shots. Additionally, the Fever held Atlanta to just 33.8 percent shooting from the floor and 22.2 percent from beyond the arc (4-for-18).

Will The Sky Get Their First Win Against Their Conference Rivals?

Meanwhile, the Sky have been struggling a bit lately. After posting four wins through their first nine games, they endured a season-high four-game losing skid, including a 91-83 defeat at the hands of the Fever on June 16. Thankfully, Chicago ended that streak with an 83-72 win over the Dallas Wings on Thursday night.

In that game, three of the Sky’s starting five scored in double figures. Marina Mabrey tied for team-high scoring honors with 19 points on 8-for-14 shooting from the field and 3-for-6 from 3-point range. She also tallied four assists. Chennedy Carter also finished with 19 points and added two assists.

But the story of the night belonged to Angel Reese. Chicago’s forward scored 16 points and hauled in a season-high 18 rebounds. She set a WNBA record, becoming the first rookie in league history to post seven straight double-doubles.

“It’s super exciting for myself,” Reese said after the game. “I try to give myself some grace and tell myself I’m doing a good job, but I have so much more to grow, and I’m just excited to be in this league.”

It is also worth noting that the third meeting between Reese and Clark is expected to set a record for WNBA ticket sales. The average ticket price for this matchup is $291, with the cheapest tickets going for $208. This is a testament to women’s basketball’s growing popularity.

Will the Fever roll to their fifth straight win, or will the Sky finally break into the win column against their conference rivals? Now that we have set the table for the Eastern Conference showdown, let’s examine the betting trends for both teams.
