The New York Liberty and Atlanta Dream meet Sunday in WNBA action at the State Farm Arena.
The New York Liberty look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The New York Liberty are averaging 79.6 points on 40.8 percent shooting and allowing 85 points on 43.8 percent shooting. Tina Charles is averaging 17.8 points and 8.5 rebounds while Kia Nurse is averaging 16.2 points and 2.4 assists. Asia Durr is the third double-digit scorer and Amanda Zahui B. is grabbing 7.8 rebounds. The New York Liberty are shooting 31.5 percent from beyond the arc and 79.9 percent from the free throw line. The New York Liberty are allowing 34.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.4 rebounds per game. The New York Liberty have lost three of their last four road games.
The Atlanta Dream need a win after losing seven of their last eight games. The Atlanta Dream are averaging 71.4 points on 38.1 percent shooting and allowing 81.2 points on 42.2 percent shooting. Tiffany Hayes is averaging 13.2 points and 3.6 rebounds while Brittney Sykes is averaging 10.4 points and 1.9 assists. Renee Montgomery is dishing 3.4 assists and Jessica Breland is grabbing 7.1 rebounds. The Atlanta Dream are shooting 30.4 percent from beyond the arc and 72.7 percent from the free throw line. The Atlanta Dream are allowing 33.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.2 rebounds per game. The Atlanta Dream have lost four of their last five home games.
The Liberty are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest, 1-8 ATS in their last 9 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Dream are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 Sunday games, 20-42 ATS in their last 62 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The under is 19-8 in Dream last 27 home games. The over is 4-1 in Liberty last 5 road games.
I'm not looking to get behind either of these teams, but the New York Liberty have lost three of their last four on the road and are losing those games by an average of 13.2 points while allowing 50.7 percent shooting. The Atlanta Dream have been awful all season, but their two wins have come at home and they've won the last two meetings against the Liberty comfortably. In a battle between two bad teams, I'm usually going to lean toward home court. If the Dream are going to win anytime soon, it would probably come here. I'll lay the bucket.
