The Washington Mystics are the more talented team, and they should be favored, but the Liberty already beat the Mystics this season. The New York Liberty has covered five of their last six games, and a lot of their losses have come down to the wire. The Liberty are decent enough defensively, mainly when it comes to allowed field goal percentage, to hang around. At home, I'll take a shot with the free buckets.
