The Liberty are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 vs. Eastern Conference, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in New York and 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
The Indiana Fever are getting blown out in neraly every game they play, aren't covering numbers and may be without Candice Dupree, one of their best players. The New York Liberty have yet to play their best basketball of the season, but it's going to come eventually led by one of the top players in the league. The Liberty have been a consistent offensive team this season and should get whatever they want in this contest as well. I have no choice but to lay the chalk, even if it's more of a fade from the Fever than anything else.
