The Indiana Fever enter 5-28, and they have lost 15 games in a row. Not only has Indiana been out of the playoff race for weeks, it has failed in the spoiler role.
Dallas can get into the postseason in 2022, but the Wings are going to need a strong finish. The Wings have won three straight games to get their overall record to 15-16.
The WNBA betting lines for this game have the Dallas Wings as 8.5-point favorites over the Indiana Fever.
Indiana Has Been Disastrous on Defensive End
It’s not easy to win games in the WNBA with poor defense, and the Indiana Fever have been finding that out throughout the 2022 season. The Fever are allowing nearly 89 points per game this season, and they just don’t have the offensive firepower to make up for that.
Guard Kelsey Mitchell leads the Fever with 18.4 points per game. The Fever are shooting 40% from the floor as a team, and they don’t get enough quality shots to put pressure on opponents.
Indiana did put up a fight in the most recent game, but this is a team that simply knows how to lose.
Wings Playing Fast on Both Ends
The Dallas Wings are comfortable playing in games that go up and down, and the season stats tell that story as well. Dallas is scoring 82 points per game this season, but they are also allowing 82.1 points per game.
Arike Ogunbowale leads the Wings with 19.9 points per game, but there are scorers up and down this lineup. Dallas has also been able to play great basketball down the stretch, and it’s clear that they are playing for each other.
Kayla Thornton is a player that doesn’t always put up the most impressive stats, but she sets the tone for this team. Head coach Vickie Johnson was asked about Thornton recently and said, “She doesn’t care about anything else but winning, so I love that about her.”

The Wings are going to give up some points, but that high-powered offense should have a big game. Dallas is playing good basketball at this time, and they will pick up their fourth straight win.
