Indiana at New York

5 units on New York -4 (-110) (risk 5 to return 5) RESULT: WIN
The Indiana Fever escaped with a 2-point win at home, but this team has not played well for a while now. They are now just 4-6 in their last 10 games, and have not rang the bell as a dog during the stretch where they have gone 0-3 ATS. The New York Liberty has been playing good basketball, especially at home where they are 6-1 in their last seven, losing only to the best team in the league - the Minnesota Lynx. New York shot poorly in the opener, connecting on just over 40% of their shots and a woeful 31% from 3-point range. They dominated the glass with 12 offensive rebounds and despite the poor shooting on the road they still had a chance to win at the end. I expect a different result at home, so I'm going with New York.
