Shane’s Free Pick
The Liberty’s offense is averaging 88.1 points but more impressive in the last game was the difference. The Sky’s offense has been good, but they weren’t as good in the last game, and they are going to really struggle to score in this game. Chicago is going to score only 70 points or less and that is going to be the difference as the Liberty are going to get the job done. Back the Liberty against the spread.
