The Liberty are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 Thursday games. The Mercury are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Thursday games. The under is 4-1 in Liberty last 5 Thursday games. The under is 4-1 in Mercury last 5 overall. The Liberty are 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Phoenix and 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

The New York Liberty are on the end of a back to back, but they're also playing some of their best ball of the season and just absolutely smoked a fantastic Las Vegas team. The Phoenix Mercury are talented and not a team I want to give up on, but they've underachieved all year, they're coming off 2 ugly losses and now there's trade rumors surrounding Skylar Diggins-Smith. Throw in the Brittney Griner news every day, and it's easy-to-understand why the Mercury may be falling apart here. I'll take a shot with the Liberty and the free points.
