The under is 4-1 in Liberty last 5 overall. The Dream are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in New York.
The Atlanta Dream need a win to have a shot at a playoff spot, but they've been rough over the last week with 3 straight losses, and they continue to have issues offensively, especially on the road. The New York Liberty have played well over the last 2 weeks, and they clinch a playoff spot with a victory here. Sabrina Ionescu continues to put the Liberty on her back, and I'm not betting against her at home in a big game. Give me the Liberty and the small chalk.
