The New York Liberty are allowing 33.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36 rebounds per game. The New York Liberty have lost three of their last five road games.
The Seattle Storm also need a win after splitting their last six games. The Seattle Storm are averaging 73.6 points on 41.3 percent shooting and allowing 71.9 points on 42.1 percent shooting. Natasha Howard is averaging 17.9 points and 9.1 rebounds while Jewell Loyd is averaging 15.8 points and 2.5 assists. Jordin Canada is dishing 4.7 assists and Alysha Clark is grabbing 5.7 rebounds.

The Liberty are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games following a straight up win and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games following a ATS win. The Storm are 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 2 days rest and 37-18-1 ATS in their last 56 games following a ATS loss. The Liberty are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Seattle. The under is 6-1 in Storm last 7 overall. The under is 8-3 in Liberty last 11 vs. Western Conference.
The New York Liberty are coming off back-to-back wins, but they beat two of the worst teams in the league, so do with that what you will. The Liberty are still losing on the road by an average of 7.4 points and shooting just 40.8 percent from the field. The Seattle Storm are winning by an average of 7.2 points at home this season and have won five of the last seven meetings against the Liberty, with all five of those wins coming by six or more points. I'll lay the chalk with the Storm, as I'm just not a believer in the Liberty.
