Indiana Fever Aim for Third Season Win Against Injured Washington Mystics

The Indiana Fever are aiming to secure their third win of the season against the Washington Mystics in an exciting matinee matchup on Wednesday, July 10. Indiana has shown great form since June, reaching a 9-13 record – holding the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Meanwhile, Washington has struggled due to several injuries impacting key players like Brittney Sykes and Shakira Austin. The Mystics have faced difficulties especially on the road (2-10 straight up this season), but they have played tight games against the Fever in 2024, narrowly losing by two points on June 7 and seven points on June 19.

Caitlin Clark: Clark made WNBA history by being the first rookie to record a triple-double in the Fever’s surprising win over New York Liberty, finishing with 19 points, 12 rebounds, and 13 assists. Touted as the favorite for Rookie of the Year, she averages 16.1 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 7.4 assists per game this season.

The Strategic Bet

The Mystics might have an impressive spread record (14-7-1), but betting on Indiana seems more promising, especially on their home court. Indiana is currently 5-4 straight up and boasts a 6-3 record against the spread at Gainbridge Fieldhouse this season—winning five consecutive games there.

The team’s recent success can be linked to Clark’s remarkable improvement; in the last eight games alone, she averaged 17.0 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 9.8 assists per game. With key players missing for Washington, it’s challenging to see them cover on the road.

Although Washington’s defense has been commendable throughout the season, Indiana’s enhanced offense remains an obstacle (Mystics rank 11th in offensive rating). Given these factors, it’s reasonable to predict that Indiana might again cover the spread in this match.
