The New York Liberty and Dallas Wings meet Thursday in WNBA action at the College Park Center.
The New York Liberty could use a win after losing four of their last five games.

Tina Charles is averaging 17.2 points and 7.6 rebounds while Kia Nurse is averaging 15.4 points and 2.1 assists. Asia Durr is the third double-digit scorer and Amanda Zahui B. is grabbing 7.3 rebounds. The New York Liberty are shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc and 79.2 percent from the free throw line. The New York Liberty are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.2 rebounds per game. The New York Liberty have split their last eight road games.
The Dallas Wings could use a win to snap a six-game losing streak. The Dallas Wings are averaging 69 points on 37.6 percent shooting and allowing 75.5 points on 41.9 percent shooting. Arike Ogunbowale is averaging 14.2 points and 2.6 rebounds while Kayla Thornton is averaging 10.8 points and 1.9 assists. Allisha Gray is dishing 2.4 assists and Glory Johnson is grabbing 6.4 rebounds. The Dallas Wings are shooting 29.7 percent from beyond the arc and 81.1 percent from the free throw line. The Dallas Wings are allowing 35.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.6 rebounds per game. The Dallas Wings have won five of their last eight home games.
The Liberty are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 Thursday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games playing on 3 or more days rest. The Wings are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-15 ATS in their last 19 vs. Eastern Conference and 10-21-1 ATS in their last 32 games overall. The Liberty are 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Dallas and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 23-8 in Wings last 31 overall. The under is 5-1 in Liberty last 6 Thursday games.
The home team has won seven of the last 10 meetings between the Liberty and Wings. The New York Liberty are losing on the road by an average of 6.4 points and shooting 41.2 percent from the field. The Dallas Wings have lost six straight and are losing those games by an average of 11.2 points, but all of their success this season has come at home where they hold teams to 39.4 percent shooting. I want nothing to do with either of these teams, but if forced to pick, I'd have to side with the Wings due to the fact them being a different team at home.
