Right when it looked like the New York Liberty were getting things together and making a run, the defense falls apart, and they lose back to back games. The Las Vegas Aces are easily the better team here, and they have an offense that should give the Liberty issues. With that said, the Aces have had issues covering numbers all season and this line is quite steep. With failed covers in 7 of their last 8 games, laying double-digit chalk with the Aces isn't something I'm trying to do. Give me the Liberty and the points.
