The New York Liberty should give their best effort of the series, as they’re at home and their season is on the line. However, the Aces have been completely dominant in this series and the playoffs overall. I’m not stepping in front of the Aces, especially at such a soft spread, a number we don’t often see with this team. You’d like to see the Liberty make a series of this, but I’m backing the Aces for a sweep and back-to-back titles.
