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

The Caitlin Clark odyssey with the Indiana Fever is going through predictable periods of turmoil and difficulty. Some people might be shocked and caught off guard by all this, but can we step back for a moment and do some basic math? A team with the No. 1 pick in the WNBA draft — or any other league draft — is usually coming off a bad season. The Fever were a bottom-tier WNBA team for a reason. Caitlin Clark, at Iowa, was playing on the second-best team in the United States for two straight seasons. She had an elite team around her. It doesn't mean that the team carried her, but it does mean that because four other players on the floor were really good, Clark had more space and more favorable matchups in which to operate. This enabled the game to open up in an ideal way. Playing with the Indiana Fever and not the Iowa Hawkeyes, Clark is now on a team at the bottom of her competitive world's food chain. It stands to reason that Clark's first season would be a struggle, and that Indiana needs more reinforcements to eventually build a roster which can compete for upper-tier status in the WNBA. Phrased very simply, this wasn't going to happen all at once. If you're truly surprised by Clark's difficult first week in the WNBA, you were expecting too much of her. This isn't her fault; it's simply the reality of going from an elite team to a bottom-rung team.

The Indiana Fever, still winless this season, have at least been more competitive in their more recent games. They covered the 4.5-point spread against the Connecticut Sun earlier this week, losing by only four points, their smallest loss of the season. The Fever lost their first two games of the season by more than 20 points. Their last two losses have been by 12 points or fewer. This team is becoming more competitive and more determined. Facing the 1-2 Seattle Storm, the Fever might have their best chance for a win in this game.

Why The Fever Could Cover The Spread

Caitlin Clark might benefit a lot from the simple fact that the Fever won't be playing the New York Liberty or the Connecticut Sun, two of the three best teams in the WNBA last season. New York and Connecticut are good. Indiana is not. Naturally, it stood to reason that the Fever would be 0-4 through a bunch of games against the Liberty and Sun. The Fever have not yet played the softer, more vulnerable portions of the WNBA. The Seattle Storm currently look like a team which will finish in the lower half of the 12-team league. They're 1-2, and their only win was over a Washington Mystics team which is still winless after falling to the Los Angeles Sparks on Tuesday night. The Storm's win over Washington was made easier by an injury to a key player for the Mystics, Brittney Sykes. The Storm aren't that good a team; the Fever might finally have an opponent they matchup well against.

Why The Storm Could Cover The Spread

The Storm should be confident after their road win at Washington. Indiana isn't playing well enough at either end of the floor to be trusted from a betting standpoint.

Final Fever-Storm Prediction & Pick

The Storm aren't very good, so even though the Fever are bad, this game might not offer you the betting clarity you hope for. Pass on a pregame bet and wait for a live play.

Final Fever-Storm Prediction & Pick: Storm -6
