The New York Liberty and Chicago Sky meet early Tuesday night at the Allstate Arena.
The New York Liberty look for a win after splitting their last six games. The New York Liberty are averaging 70.4 points on 41.3 percent shooting and are allowing 70.6 points on 36 percent shooting. Tina Charles is averaging 13.9 points and 8.8 rebounds while Sugar Rodgers is averaging 10.1 points and 2.2 assists. Tanisha Wright is dishing 3.4 assists and Brittany Boyd is grabbing 3.6 rebounds. The New York Liberty are still one of the better defensive teams in the WNBA, but they’re allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep. That’s not going to cut it for a team that’s scored 63 or less points in three of its last five games. The Liberty are 1-2 SU on the road this season.

The Chicago Sky look to keep rolling after winning four of their last six games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 85.9 points on 45.9 percent shooting and are allowing 81.3 points on 41.9 percent shooting. Elena Delle Donne is averaging 29 points and 9.6 rebounds while Cappie Pondexter is averaging 16.9 points and 2.3 assists. Courtney Vandersloot is dishing 4.9 assists and Betnijah Laney is grabbing 3.4 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are still the best offensive team in the league, scoring 71 or more points in six straight games. The issue with the Sky is that they’ve allowed 72 or more points during that same stretch. The Sky are 2-0 SU on their home court.
The Liberty are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Sky are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record. The Liberty are 0-4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Chicago and 1-9-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings overall.
With the way the Liberty allow teams to shoot from deep, the Sky could drop 100 points in this game if they're not careful. New York doesn't even make an attempt to close out. I kind of like the over in this spot.
