Sabrina Ionescu is averaging 18.3 points and four assists while Layshia Clarendon is averaging 12.3 points and 2.8 rebounds.

The Chicago Sky look to build on their four-game winning streak. The Chicago Sky are averaging 87.1 points on 49.7 percent shooting and allowing 82 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Kahleah Copper is averaging 15.1 points and 4.6 rebounds while Allie Quigley is averaging 14.4 points and 2.6 assists.

The Liberty are 7-20-1 ATS in their last 28 Tuesday games, 6-18-2 ATS in their last 26 vs. Eastern Conference and 18-39-3 ATS in their last 60 games overall. The Sky are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite, 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Liberty last 6 overall. The under is 6-1 in Sky last 7 overall. The Liberty are 0-3-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The New York Liberty aren't winning or covering, so you can understand why their spreads continue to grow. However, the Chicago Sky have allowed teams to hang around this season with a shaky at times defense and they can give away some covers. I'm not leaving this many points on the table. Give me the Liberty and the points.
