New York at Tulsa

1.5 units on Tulsa -3.5 (-102) (risk 1.5 to return 1.5) RESULT: WIN
New York (11-18) struggles on the road and has to make the trip to Tulsa for this one. The Liberty is 5-9 straight-up on the road and are slumping, on a 1-5 ATS run in their last six games overall. Needing a strong push to make a run at the postseason, New York has fallen apart losing five of the last six games, even once as chalk. It's been a crushing weekend, as New York's chances of making a fourth straight postseason appearance took a big hit Friday with a 73-67 loss to Indiana. The result dropped the Liberty to 2 1/2 games behind the Fever for the final playoffs spot in the East with five games remaining. New York was down 21-4 in the first quarter! The Liberty is 0-4 ATS in their last four against the Western Conference. Last place Tulsa doesn't show up much on the road, but they do play competitive basketball at home, with a 6-8 record. Tulsa is on an 8-5 ATS run. They beat New York in the most recent meeting on this court in a 78-66 win. The Shock are 4-0-1 ATS in their last five games when following a spread loss, and this is an excellent bounce-back spot for the home team and a bad one for the down visitors. Take Tulsa.
