The Tulsa Shock look to build on their impressive six-game winning streak. The Tulsa Shock are averaging 82.4 points on 41.7 percent shooting and are allowing 72 points on 40.4 percent shooting. Skylar Diggins is averaging 17.1 points and five assists while Plenette Pierson is averaging 15.3 points and six rebounds. Riquna Williams is dishing 2.1 assists and Courtney Paris is grabbing 12.4 rebounds. The Tulsa Shock are shooting 39.2 percent from downtown and have scored 86 or more points in three straight games. It’s almost like the Shock got even better once Odyssey Sims went down with a knee injury. The Shock are a perfect 3-0 SU on their home court.
The Liberty are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Shock are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
I know the Liberty are solid defensively, but the Shock are simply lighting it up on the offensive end. This line comes off as way too low. Good NY defense or not, I'm taking the over in this spot.
