The over is 5-2 in Liberty last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The Lynx are 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams that are going nowhere fast, and you can argue the Minnesota Lynx have the value given they're getting a free bucket, and they just beat the Liberty on the road a few days ago. However, I'm not sure if we can trust the Lynx to win two games in a row, and their defense is horrible. At home, the New York Liberty should be able to find a way to get the job done. If the Liberty cant win this game, this is going to be a long, long season. Well, longer than we originally already thought.
