5 units on Connecticut -272 (moneyline) (risk 5 to return 5)  RESULT: LOSS

The Connecticut Sun evened their series with the New York Liberty on Saturday, and the series resumes tonight in Connecticut. The Sun have won six of their last seven at home, and stand at 14-4 overall. The bad news for the Liberty is the fact they out-shot the Sun 43% to 37% from the field, out-shot them from beyond the arc 45% to 39%, and still lost game 2. The reason was the Liberty cranked up 29 three's and could not get anything inside, while the Sun continuously pounded the ball inside, going to the line 26 times to the Liberty’s five. The Liberty stayed in the game because they hit 45% from beyond the arc, but I'll take a team at home that gets to the line, works in the paint over a team launching 3's, even with as high a success rate from beyond the arc, it was not enough for the Liberty. The Sun get the call in this one.
