NY Liberty – Tulsa Shock
Tulsa will play its 7th game in 13 days (4 of them were played away from home + 2 back-to-back situation), while Liberty is on home-stand and played just 5 matches in 13 days. No doubts who will be a fresher side this evening at Madison Square Garden! Also Liberty should be really motivated for revenge against Tulsa.
Liberty also is just a better team in my eyes, with more depth and experience, which finally started to show up in wins column. Liberty can’t lose games against weaker teams at home if they would to take part in playoffs and that’s why I expect comfortable win for Liberty here.
Really can’t understand this line. For me spread should be set around 7 points.
Pick: NY Liberty (-3) @ 1.94 8/10 Pinnacle
Atlanta – Indiana
This bet is based mostly on stats and estimations. Atlanta has huge offensive potential which explores in home games. Indiana is quite limited offensively this season, while Atlanta is playing hard defense at home.
Those time when Indiana was a title contender are gone, but for Atlanta players Indiana is good motivator, especially today when season series decideds.
I expect double digit win for Atlanta here. I see them scoring 84+ points, but hardly see Indiana scoring more than 77.
Pick: Atlanta (-8) @ 1.94 5/10 Pinnacle
