The Connecticut Sun are allowing 29.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.8 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have split their last eight road games.
The New York Liberty could use a win after losing 11 of their last 12 games. The New York Liberty are averaging 77.3 points on 41.3 percent shooting and allowing 84.8 points on 43.8 percent shooting. Tina Charles is averaging 17.6 points and 7.9 rebounds while Kia Nurse is averaging 13.9 points and 2.1 assists. Bria Hartley is the third double-digit scorer and Asia Durr is dishing 1.7 assists.

The Sun are 5-14 ATS in their last 19 Friday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest. The Liberty are 7-19-1 ATS in their last 27 home games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games overall. The Sun are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings. The over is 3-0-1 in Liberty last 4 overall. The under is 5-2 in Sun last 7 games playing on 2 days rest.
The Connecticut Sun smoked the Liberty earlier this month, but they're also not nearly as good on the road as they are at home. The Connecticut Sun lose at home by an average of 3.6 points while shooting 39.6 percent from the field. However, the New York Liberty aren't good anywhere and have nothing to play for at this point. The Sun are battling for the top seed in the league. The Liberty get blown out often and are losing at home by an average of 6.8 points. I'll lay the chalk.
