This is a big number to lay and the Liberty are coming off their best showing of the season with a big win over the Mystics. However, the Liberty are still a team that can't score the basketball, and they've had major issues covering numbers dating back to last season. The Las Vegas Aces have one of the better offenses in the league and have league and have been nice to bettors against the number. If Las Vegas continues to score at its average clip, the Liberty will have issues staying in this game.
