Shane’s Free Pick
The Sun have tired legs and now they have to face off against a very good Liberty team. The Liberty are going to have no issue running up the score, but I expect their defense is also going to step up here. The Sun’s offense is going to have some major issues scoring runs here, and that will be the difference as New York is going to get the job done. Back the Liberty against the spread.
