The Liberty are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Stars are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in New York and 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings overall.
I hate big chalk but the Stars have shown us nothing on the road this season. Meanwhile, the Liberty are playing well at home and will have the advantage in an early, early game. If forced to pick, I'd side with New York by double digits.
