Indiana Fever vs. Connecticut Sun: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

The Indiana Fever continue their brutal season-opening stretch with a home tilt against the Connecticut Sun.   

With 2023 WNBA finalist New York and WNBA semi-finalist Connecticut each on the schedule twice to open the season, the Indiana Fever and phenom Caitlin Clark knew there would be some early bumps.

Three games into the 2024 campaign, the Fever are bottom of the league at 0-3 and will be desperately hoping to post that first win against the Sun on Monday night.  

Read below to see our experts’ picks and predictions for this game.

Indiana Fever vs. Connecticut Sun betting picks and predictions 

Connecticut Sun -6.5

While Indiana was expected to struggle early based on its opening schedule, Connecticut was expected to fly out of the gates strong, and that is exactly what the Sun have done. 

Following a 21-point season-opening victory over the Fever, Connecticut got 22 from DeWanna Bonner in an 84-77 victory over the Washington Mystics. Bonner leads the team at 21 points per game, followed by Tyasha Harris and DiJonai Carington at 16 PPG. 

Those three, along with Alyssa Thomas, who had a triple double, and Rachel Banham (10 points), all scored in double figures in Connecticut’s 92-71 win over the Fever last week. 

There is no reason to expect anything different this time around. With the game in Indiana, the Fever are expected to keep it closer, but the Sun should have no problem covering the 6.5-point spread. 

DeWanna Bonner over 18.5 points (-130)

Bonner, a five-time all-star, led the Sun in scoring last season, and she has picked right up where she left off, going for 20 and 22 in Connecticut’s opening two wins. The veteran is also averaging six rebounds and 3.5 steals and is shooting more than 50% from the field.

Expect Bonner to continue her strong early-season run and score more than 18 points against the Fever. 

Alyssa Thomas under 14.5 points (-115)

Thomas, last year’s WNBA MVP runner-up, is again filling the stat sheet. She is averaging 13 points, 10.5 rebounds and 9.5 assists. She could easily break out and go for 20 points or more against the Fever, but that is not what Connecticut needs from her with their overall scoring depth.

Look for Thomas to have another good game in all facets, but she should stay under 14.5 points. 

Caitlin Clark over 20.5 points (-120)

Clark leads Indiana in scoring at 17 points per game, and she also leads the team with 5.7 assists and is third on the squad with 4.3 rebounds. She is also averaging a team-high seven turnovers per game as teams have been pressuring her heavily and her teammates have struggled with some passes. 

However, Clark is already showing her willingness and competence in shooting anywhere on the floor. She has gone for 20 points or more in two of her first three games. Expect it to move to three out of four. 

Over 163.5

The Fever have already played two games over 163.5 points, with their 92-71 season-opening loss to the Sun the exception.

Expect that trend to continue as teams, especially top-tier ones like Connecticut, will score heavily against Indiana, with Clark and the Fever responding in kind.
