Indiana Fever at Connecticut Sun (-2, 139.5)

The Fever is starting to spread. The hottest team in the WNBA ran its franchise-record win streak to 11 games following an 84-79 win over Atlanta.

But now the Fever must face the Sun, who are picking the right time to shine. Connecticut, the only other team in the Eastern Conference to have a winning record, is flying high after posting a 72-64 win at San Antonio. The Sun are paced by star guard Asjha Jones, who has led the team in scoring eight of the past 10 games.

"They can trap me in the post, but they can't really trap me in the perimeter, so I tried to get out more where I had a little more room to work," Jones told the Associated Press. "From there it was more one-on-one, and I got a couple of open looks."

Indiana took the team’s only other meeting in Indianapolis, but the Sun are 4-3 at home and appear to have the right remedy to cure the Fever.

Pick: Sun -2

Minnesota Lynx at Seattle Storm (-4.5, 147.5)

The Storm has had no trouble caging the Lynx this season.

Twice last month Seattle handled Minnesota, posting wins by a combined 45 points. And it wasn’t even that close. In fact, the Lynx haven’t beaten the Storm since August of 2007 and have never won in the state of Washington.

Seattle likely will be missing stud center Lauren Jackson who is nursing a strained Achilles tendon, but in each victory the Storm showed their depth by putting multiple players in double figures.

"They've proven they can score and they do a good job in transition," Seattle guard Sue Bird told the Associated Press. "Early on, we sent three, four players back at time. We didn't want them to get off to a good start."

Pick: Storm -4.5
