New York Liberty

The New York Liberty defeated the Chicago Sky 83-80 in their last game. New York finished the game with a 43.1 percent field goal percentage (31 of 72) and 7 hit three-pointers out of their 18 tries. Natasha Howard scored 16 points on 5 of 12 shots. She participated for 29 minutes and pulled down 10 rebounds.


Although the Chicago Sky should win and should have a sizable advantage, this is a lot of points when compared to a Sky club that are desperately trying to make the playoffs. The Sky can appear a little flat at first and just exert itself enough to complete the task. It's a tricky line, but I'm going to go with the Liberty because of the abundance of free points.

Pick: New York Liberty +10.5
