The WNBA semifinal round between the Connecticut Sun and New York Liberty resumes tonight in Connecticut. The Liberty took game 1 by the score of 72-63, as the Sun connected on just 37% shooting and 4-22 from beyond the arc - a woeful 18%. Things should be different tonight. The Sun is 13-4 at home on the season, and in those 13 wins they have a winning margin of 11.3 points per game. The Liberty has a losing record away from home. In their road losses they have been outscored by a similar margin at 11.2 ppg. This now becomes a double revenge game for the Sun. This game fits a long term trend that has produced a 96-41 ATS mark favoring the Sun - good for 70.1%, so I'll back the Sun here.
