Will update with trends once they're released.
The Las Vegas Aces are the better team here by a wide margin no matter how you slice it, as they win outright, cover numbers and have a serious edge at both ends of the floor. The New York Liberty don't have a lot going for them this season due to all their youth and are massive underdogs each night. However, the Liberty have shown fight these last couple of weeks, which included a win over the Washington Mystics and an outright victory against the Chicago Sky that despite being 17.5-point underdogs. The Liberty shot 56 percent from the field in that game and made 14 threes.
Give me the Liberty and the boatload of points.
