The New York Liberty and Dallas Wings meet Tuesday in WNBA action at the College Park Center.

The New York Liberty have a chance to win three straight games for the first time this season. The New York Liberty are averaging 78.9 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 83.5 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Tina Charles is averaging 20.1 points and 7.1 rebounds while Epiphanny Prince is averaging 9.5 points and 1.9 assists. Shavonte Zellous is grabbing three rebounds and Bria Hartley is dishing 3.6 assists. The New York Liberty are shooting 32.2 percent from beyond the arc and 76.5 percent from the free throw line. The New York Liberty are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.2 rebounds per game. The New York Liberty have lost four of their last six road games.

The Dallas Wings look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Dallas Wings are averaging 87.1 points on 44.9 percent shooting and allowing 81.3 points on 41.9 percent shooting. Elizabeth Cambage is averaging 19.9 points and 9.1 rebounds while Skylar Diggins-Smith is averaging 19.5 points and 6.5 assists. Allisha Gray is dishing 1.9 assists and Azura Stevens is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Dallas Wings are shooting 30.9 percent from beyond the arc and 79.4 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 32.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.6 rebounds per game. The Dallas Wings have won five of their last seven home games.

The Liberty are 0-8 ATS in their last 8 vs. Western Conference, 4-14 ATS in their last 18 Tuesday games and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Wings are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games, 9-3 ATS in their last 12 vs. Eastern Conference and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Liberty are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Dallas and the over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

I'm not high on laying big numbers, especially in early games where both teams can be a bit sluggish. The New York Liberty are coming off two of their better pefromances of the season, but they've still been awful against the number and are being outscored by 7.1 points on the road. The Dallas Wings have been one of the hotter teams in the league over the last couple of weeks, and they're outscoring teams by 11.7 points at home on the season. The Wings are also 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite. I don't love this line, but if forced to pick, I'd take the Wings in a blowout. 

Dallas Wings -9
