Caitlin Clark and the Indiana Fever take on the Las Vegas Aces. Our WNBA odds series has our Fever Aces prediction, odds, and pick. Find out how to watch Fever Aces.

Caitlin Clark and the Indiana Fever finally broke through on Friday night. The Fever broke, so to speak. More precisely, the Fever broke their five-game losing streak to start the regular season. Indiana was down by 11 to the Los Angeles Sparks but came back to win, 78-73.

The Fever won with defense. Clark scored just 11 points but threw herself into every part of the game, pulling down 10 boards and handing out 8 assists while collecting 4 steals. Indiana forced 18 Los Angeles turnovers and finished with eight fewer turnovers, a big difference in the game. The Fever also bothered the Sparks' starting backcourt. The three starting Los Angeles guards finished the game 5 of 22 from the field and 0-12 on 3-point shots. Los Angeles went 5 of 24 from 3-point range for the entire game. The Fever limited L.A. to just 28 points in the second half. It was defense which got the job done for Indiana.

The Las Vegas Aces did not play great defense in their most recent game, a 98-88 loss to the Phoenix Mercury. The Aces were smoked by Phoenix super-scorer Kahleah Copper, who poured in 37 points and has scored over 35 in multiple games the past 10 days. Vegas looks a long way away from the top form it displayed for most of last season, when the team went 34-6 in the regular season and then roared through the playoffs to win another WNBA title. This team hasn't yet produced an emphatic and complete performance in 2024. Coach Becky Hammon expects better from her players. We will see if Vegas can finally dominate from start to finish.

Why The Fever Could Cover The Spread

Caitlin Clark is a student of the game. She doesn't have to force things at the offensive end. She learned in the win over the Los Angeles Sparks that she doesn't have to score a ton for her team to do well. She handed out eight assists and got other players involved. She played defense. She rebounded. If she is making an impact in several different facets of the game, her offense doesn't have to be the primary reason the Fever win a game. Clark's high basketball IQ and her willingness to do the dirty work on defense and the glass is the kind of trait which wins games and improves a ballclub. The Fever should be newly confident entering this game after finally figuring out how to win a close WNBA game in 2024.

The Aces, as noted earlier, are just not playing well. They don't have Chelsea Gray, and they miss her. It's clear. This team continues to fail to cover spreads, since they have been in the area of 15 points, such as this one. Why trust the Aces against the spread if they can't cover? Indiana should keep this game close.

Why The Aces Could Cover The Spread

The Fever are playing the second end of a back-to-back stack of games, having played in Los Angeles on Friday night. The Aces are rested and — after their recent home loss to the Liberty — will be highly motivated to fix their problems and play a top-quality game. If they do, they will run the fatigued Fever out of the building.

Final Fever-Aces Prediction & Pick

The Aces haven't played great, but the Fever are likely to be tired on the second end of a back to back which is also their third game in four days. The Aces should run away with this one in the second half and will cover.

Final Fever-Aces Prediction & Pick: Aces -15
