The New York Liberty have allowed 71 or less points in five of their last seven games and have won 13 straight when allowing 75 or less points. The Liberty have clinched the top seed in the East, so they may rest some key players. The Liberty are 11-4 SU on their home court and have won five of their last seven.
The Sun are 3-13 ATS in their last 16 vs. Eastern Conference and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Liberty are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games and 24-9 ATS in their last 33 games overall. The Sun are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Liberty have beaten the Sun in five straight meetings, and Connecticut is a team that's just eager for the offseason due to so many injuries. However, the Liberty may rest some players due to the playoffs and top seed being wrapped up. I'll take my chances with the points here.
