The Liberty are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. loss and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 road games. The Stars are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Liberty are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Stars play their best ball at home, but the Liberty are easily the better team here and have been comfortable on the road as of late. Give me NY and the reasonable chalk.
