The Seattle Storm enter Tuesday’s matchup (7 p.m. ET) at the New York Liberty with four wins in their last five, outscoring their opponents by 8.2 points per game over that span. The Storm (12-5) are a 4-point favorite with a total of 162.5.
New York (5-11), with the second-worst record in the league, has dropped four of five and has been outscored by 8.8 points per game during the past week. The Liberty are trending downward, while the Storm are trending in the right direction. The line reflects the current course of each squad.
The oddsmakers opened Seattle as 5-point road favorites. All signs point to the chalk, but is there value betting the favorite? Using Bet Labs, I’ve found a profitable against-the-spread system that can be used in Storm-Liberty.
