Neither of these teams are all that impressive, and this is a spot where I'd usually grab the points and take my chances. However, the New York Liberty are at home, they have the best player on the floor, and they've been better defensively through three games. If the Liberty can't take care of business here at home, this season is going to be even longer than we originally thought. The line is reasonable. Give me the Liberty in a feel good victory.
