4 units on New York -5 (-110) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: win
4 units on Game Total UNDER 146.5 -110 (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: loss
The wins have come often and relatively easy for the Fever at home, but this team comes to New York with a pedestrian road resume that reads 8-8. Those are the best of their road numbers, as the Fever is just 3-6 on the road vs. a winning team. Lately, they are just 1-4 in their last five. They have been outscored in their last seven road games vs. a winning team by 49 points, with three of the losses have come by double-digits. The Liberty is getting their sea legs back after a horrible ATS run of 2-8 they have rebounded by going 5-2 ATS in their last seven. Defense has defined this club's recent play at home with the Liberty allowing a stingy 66.3 points per game in their last six in New York (regulation minutes only). Indiana's road woes aren't predicated on a lack of defense as they are 4-1 to the UNDER in their last five as a road dog. The Liberty’s home defense has led the way to a profitable 9-2 mark to the UNDER in their last 11 when posted as a home favorite, as well as stiffening up the defense after an ATS loss where they are now 8-2 to the UNDER. The Liberty has also failed to cover just one of their last seven when coming off three day’s rest or more. Play New York and the UNDER in this matchup.
