The New York Liberty were 7-point underdogs on Saturday in Minnesota and were routed, 85-71, by the Lynx. New York has lost two straight and four of its last five. However, that hasn’t stopped oddsmakers from installing the Liberty as favorites over the Atlanta Dream tonight (7 p.m. ET).
New York opened as a 6-point favorite at home. Considering the team’s recent performance and 65% of spread tickets on the Dream, should bettors fade the Liberty or buy low on New York?
