The Liberty come into this game with a 20-6 record overall and they have won two games in a row since losing last Friday. On Tuesday, the Liberty faced off against the Los Angeles Sparks and they were able to secure a 76-69 victory. Courtney Vandersloot had a strong game putting up 23 points, seven rebounds, and six assists. The Liberty are averaging 88.2 points while their defense is giving up 82 points per game. The offense is ranked 2nd while the defense is ranked 6th. Breanna Stewart has been the top player for the Liberty averaging 22.9 points while shooting 46.2 percent from the field and 37.4 percent from behind the three point line.
Lynx Betting Preview
The Lynx come into this game with a 13-14 record overall and they have turned around their season, although they were defeated in the last game. The Lynx’s offense only scored 69 points against the Connecticut Sun and that led to the 10 point defeat. Lindsay Allen was the top player for the Lynx putting up 16 points and three assists. The Lynx are averaging 80.1 points while their defense is giving up 85.1 points per game. The offense is ranked 8th while the defense is ranked 11th. Naphessa Collier is the top player for the Lynx but she is still dealing with an ankle injury and it doesn’t look like she’s going to be able to go in this game.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Liberty were just knocked off by the Lynx last Friday, but this game is going to be different. Without Collier the offense really struggled in the last game for the Lynx and their offense is going to really struggle again in this game. Look for another big offensive game from Stewart, and the Lynx just aren’t going to have the offense to keep up here. Back the Liberty to win this game and cover the spread.
