You can make a strong case for the New York Liberty and the free points here as they're plying decent ball as of late and their defense travels. However, this is a big game in terms of the standings and a potential playoff spot, and you usually lean toward the home team in these spots. The Los Angeles Sparks are also the more talented team from top to bottom, and they have the offensive horses needed to give the Liberty issues. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Sparks.
