Shane’s Free Pick
The Liberty’s defense really looked bad in the last game giving up 98 points and they are going to really struggle again in this game. The Mystics offense is averaging 81.1 points and they are going to have no issue running up the score. I do expect the Liberty’s offense is going to continue their success scoring, and that will be the difference as this game is going to go over the total. Back the over to cash.
