The Tulsa Shock won all of six games a year ago, and is off to a 1-6 start. Bettors have been able to take advantage of their poor play, as the books are padding their lines. But after four straight covers, they have backed off. The Liberty started slowly a year ago, but roared through the second half of the season, and find themselves in a similar position here as losers of four straight. Unlike most teams that go on cruise control coming to Tulsa, the Liberty will have a different agenda here and focus off of the four losses. New York is also 15-7 ATS in their last 22 vs. the Shock including 9-4 ATS on the road (Detroit/Tulsa). I like New York. The Liberty is scoring big, and is allowing 85.7 points per game so expect this one to be played in the 80s at least, as the Shock allow close to 80 per show. The Liberty is now 9-1 to the OVER vs. losing teams in their last 10, and have played five straight to the OVER on the road. Play the OVER in this one.
