On Thursday, the Indiana Fever and Caitlin Clark welcome the Seattle Storm to Gainbridge Fieldhouse, and we have you covered with our best Storm vs. Fever prediction and expert picks based on the best WNBA odds.

Eight days have passed since the Seattle Storm's thrilling victory over the Indiana Fever. The visitors enter Thursday's contest as 2-point favorites, and the game tips off at 7 p.m. ET, broadcasted on local TV and Prime Video.

Winning three straight games after starting the season 1-3, Seattle has shown significant improvement. They remain strong contenders in the latest WNBA championship odds. Their recent winning streak includes an 85-83 victory over the Fever on May 22, a game that drew one of the largest crowds in WNBA history.

Caitlin Clark, who was pivotal in the fourth quarter of that game, recently delivered a 30-point performance on Tuesday. Her scoring spree keeps her in the conversation for the WNBA MVP odds despite a challenging start to her professional career. This matchup against the Fever will be another opportunity for her to shine and help her team extend their winning streak.

Here are our best Storm vs. Fever predictions and expert picks (odds via our best sports betting apps; Pick confidence is based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

Storm vs. Fever predictions for Thursday

Storm -2 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The Storm were still shaking off a frustrating 1-3 start due to injuries, poor shooting, and visa mishaps one week ago. Now this group is at full strength, and the results have been plain to see.

Seattle controlled much of that game against the Fever on May 29 and likely would have covered if not for a hectic final minute. The team then earned a 32-point blowout win against the Washington Mystics before notching a nine-point road triumph over the frisky Chicago Sky - two teams with similar profiles to the Fever in my WNBA power rankings.

Even with Clark dropping a career-high 30 points on Tuesday, Indiana still couldn't muster a win at home against the Los Angeles Sparks, who had won just one game to that point. The Fever are still stuck at one win, and I don't see that changing on Thursday.

Storm to win first quarter and game ⭐⭐⭐

The Storm roared to a 25-16 lead after the first quarter and controlled much of the game thereafter when these teams last met. That's par for the course with these two squads through the first two weeks.

The Storm have outscored teams by 6.3 points per 100 possessions in the first quarter, winning the opening period in five of seven games. The Fever, on the other hand, have won the first quarter just once in eight tries, with opponents outscoring them by an absurd 30.5 points per 100 possessions.

There's obviously risk in needing Seattle to win both the first quarter and the game. But these +145 odds profit $14.50 on a $10 bet, with a 40.82% implied probability, according to our odds converter. That sounds like value to me on the road favorites.

Caitlin Clark player props for Thursday

Caitlin Clark Under 20.5 points ⭐⭐⭐

It's OK to admit when you're wrong, and we certainly didn't expect Clark to go off for 30 points on Tuesday in the highest-scoring game of her career thus far.

In many ways, though, it was a typical game for Clark. She went 7-for-16 from the floor (43.8%) while knocking down three of her 10 attempts from deep (30%), with her playing time and shot volume typical of early games. The difference was a whopping 15 trips to the free-throw line against one of the WNBA's worst defenses.

The Storm entered Wednesday ranked fourth in opponents' free-throw rate (25.3%), and they limited Clark to just five first-half points on May 22 before a late-game surge that was admittedly a bit fluky.

Clark scored 21 points total in that contest, one of just three times in eight career starts that she's cleared this prop total. I'd be surprised if she does that again on Thursday, which compels me to once again fade a total that our best sportsbooks have nudged even higher than usual.

Best odds: -108 via FanDuel

Caitlin Clark Over 5.5 rebounds ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I'm drawn to this player prop each time Clark steps onto the court, especially when it's being offered at such generous +106 odds, which return $10.60 for every $10 wagered.

Clark has finished with five-plus rebounds in five straight games and six of her last seven, and she pulled down seven boards in last week's tilt against Seattle. That was one of four times she's cleared this total in her last seven contests.

Clark has already proven to be one of the WNBA's best rebounding guards, and the Storm have been a merely average rebounding team thus far. This feels like a strong value at these plus-money odds from FanDuel.
