Indiana Fever vs. New York Liberty – In-Season Stats & Betting Trends

The Indiana Fever Have Had An Up-And-Down Season Thus Far

Despite having the top overall pick for the second straight season, the Indiana Fever’s season has been a mixed bag. They posted just three wins through their first 13 games. That was followed up with a season-high four-game winning streak. That four-game winning streak was snapped with back-to-back losses to the Chicago Sky (88-87) and the Seattle Storm.

Indiana got back into the win column with an 88-82 win over the Phoenix Mercury on June 30 but suffered an 88-69 defeat courtesy of the Las Vegas Aces on July 2. In that contest, Kelsey Mitchell led a trio of starters that scored in double figures. She scored a team-high 23 points and grabbed four rebounds.  Although she shot 45 percent from the field overall (9-of-20), Mitchell did knock down five of her 10 attempts from beyond the arc.

Reigning Rookie of the Year, Aliyah Boston poured in 18 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, including five on the offensive glass. Caitlin Clark did not shoot the ball at an efficient clip (4-12 FG and 1-7 3PT), but she finished with a double-double that included 13 points and 11 assists. She also tallied six rebounds as well.

Indiana kept the game close through three quarters, trailing by just six points heading into the final frame. However,  the Aces opened up the final period with a 14-0 run en route to outscoring the Fever by a 23-10 margin, handing the Fever their third loss in four outings.

Can The Liberty Produce Their Second Six-Game Winning Streak Of The Season?

Meanwhile, the Liberty have been playing lights out this season. Yep, they were impressive through their first six games, posting a 4-2 mark during that stretch. But they have been even hotter ever since. They went on an eight-game tear before suffering a 99-93 loss to the Mercury on June 18.

Following that minor hiccup, New York has rattled off five straight wins, including a 76-67 victory over the Minnesota Lynx on Tuesday night. In that game, the Liberty placed three of their starters in double figures, led by a 21-point, 12-rebound, four-assist effort from Jonquel Jones.

To be totally objective, Breanna Stewart had an off-shooting night, to put it nicely. She finished 5-of-20 overall and missed all five of her 3-point attempts. On the other side of the narrative, the reigning MVP scored 17 points and pulled down a game-high 17 rebounds. At the other end of the floor, Stewart had two steals and two blocked shots.

Sabrina Ionescu (7-20 FG and 1-10 3PT) also finished with 17 points, five boards, and five dimes. This game was a defensive clinic of sorts, as both teams shot below 40 percent overall and less than 30 percent from distance. However, despite its poor shooting, New York stretched its winning streak to five games, outscoring Minnesota by an 18-8 margin in the final frame.

Will the Liberty win six consecutive games for the second time this season, or will the Fever pull off an improbable upset? Now that we have set the table for the Eastern Conference showdown, let’s examine the betting trends for both teams.
