The Las Vegas Aces are the better team and should be favored, but they've also had issues lately with consistency, and they just allowed the Liberty to hang around with them on Tuesday. The New York Liberty are hit or miss in their efforts, but they compete regardless, and their defense has improved. Also, this is a very early start, and it's going to be interesting to see how a west coast team handles things, as this is a 9:00 AM start on their clocks. Could be some sluggish play. Give me the points with the Liberty.
