The Liberty are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 vs. Eastern Conference. The Fever are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games. The Liberty are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Indiana.
The Fever have beaten the Liberty in six of the last nine meetings, and Indiana has some roughriders who aren't exactly going to allow its season to end on its home court. I expect the Fever to put up a fight and send this game back to MSG.
