I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams that have been awful up to this point. The New York Liberty may have the edge because they're at home, but they've also lost seven straight games, they're banged up with injuries and their offense has been nonexistent. The Indiana Fever have issues of their own, but at leas they're at home and have shown far and away more life on the offensive side. Wouldn't touch this game personally, but if forced to pick, give me the Fever.
