It's no secret the Lynx are probably the best team in the WNBA, but they're coming off two questionable losses. The Liberty have won six of their last seven overall and have beaten the Lynx in three of the last four meetings. New York is a physical team that plays hard and owns the glass.
The Lynx win, but the Liberty and the points is where the value is at.
