The over is 5-1 in Dream last 6 overall.
A battle between two of the worst teams in the league that have horrible numbers across the board. The other two games are far and away better better options today. However, if forced to pick, the Liberty and the small chalk at home has to be the play. The Dream have lost 12 straight and are losing at home by an average of 9.8 points. The Liberty are trash in their own right, but they did just beat the Fever on the road as a five-point underdog. Give me the home team and small number.
