The under is 6-0 in Liberty last 6 Saturday games. The Sun are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The New York Liberty is the more talented team on paper, but this line is a bit disrespectful toward a Sun squad that's 3-0 and has one of the best defenses in the league. The Connecticut Sun have won 8 of the last 10 meetings against the Liberty. Also, this is a weird early start, where we often see sluggish play from players used to later starts. Lot of points here. Give me the Sun and the free buckets on the road.
