Shane’s Free Pick
The Liberty might have the better record, but the Sun are going to be the team that finds the success here. The best of this Sun’s team all season has been the offense and they are going to lockdown here. The lack of scoring by the Liberty will be the difference as the Sun are going to get the job done. Back Connecticut against the spread.
