The Liberty are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Wings are 5-15 ATS in their last 20 vs. Eastern Conference and 8-17-1 ATS in their last 26 Friday games. The Liberty are 1-8 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Dallas and 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The over is 3-1-1 in Liberty last 5 overall. The under is 18-7-2 in Wings last 27 overall.

The New York Liberty are losing by an average of 15.6 points during their six-game losing streak and lose by an average of eight points on the road. Home is the only place where the Wings have looked like a functional basketball team this season, and the home team has won seven of the last 10 meetings between these two sides. If everything holds true, this should be a reasonable hom victory for the Wings.
