SEA vs IND Dream11 Prediction WNBA Live Fantasy Basketball Dream11 Team, Top Picks and Tips for Seattle Storm vs Indiana Fever

Share

SEA vs IND Dream11: The WNBA has reached the midway stage and in fact, a fair distance past that. In a week, we will have the All-Star game but there are plenty of other matters to be settled till then. This has been a great season as usual and we have seen so many fun battles already. In this game, the Seattle Storm will take on the Indiana Fever.

The Storm has a great start to the season, winning 12 of their 19 games and they have beaten some elite teams on the way too. In the last game, the Storm defeated 88:78 as Jewell Loyd scored 24 points. On the other hand, the Indiana Fever has been just the opposite, constantly losing and having only won five out of their 21 games. In their last game, they once again got off track and lost to the Mercury 78:99 despite a 21 points performance by Kelsey Mitchell. Can Indiana snap their losing streak?

WNBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Storm getting it done

Seattle can be projected as one of the title contenders. First, they have a lot of experience and players who have tasted championships before and with Breanna Stewart being the offensive enforcer, there is no doubt that the team is loaded with scoring options. Sue Bird has been incredible as a playmaker whereas Loyd has been making her shots too. Magbebor has had her offensive moments but mainly she provides defense and rebounding. Gabby Williams has been huge too but the bench has been a bit suspect. The team just signed Tina Charles but how does she fit here?

Fever has been horrid on both ends

Fever has been the worst defensive team in the league and to make matters worse, the team has one of the worst offenses. Only Kelsey Mitchell has been a constant scoring option. NaLyssa Smith has a lot of talent but she is inconsistent as a rookie. Queen Egbo has been strong inside scorer whereas Victoria Vivians has been also erratic. The Fever has not yet figured out the lineup that works for this squad.

Performance Predictions

Highest scorer: Breanna Stewart: 25
Highest rebounder: Breanna Stewart: 12
Top assists maker: Sue Bird: 8
Score Prediction: Storm 90 Fever 88
