The New York Liberty were so close to pulling off a big upset against the Seattle Storm and spoiling Sue Bird’s final game in New York. Yet, Bird in the dagger to send the Liberty to a 9-point loss.
Today, they’ll try to rebound against the second-best team in the league – the Connecticut Sun. Connecticut is also coming off a loss, falling to the Washington Mystics. Will the Sun be able to get back in the win column against a struggling Liberty?
Here are the odds for the matchup via WynnBET.

Liberty vs. Sun Prediction and Pick
The Sun have proven two things to me this season. The first is that they are once again a legitimate contender to win it all. The second is that they know how to beat up on bad teams, and the Liberty certainly fall into that category.
The two times Connecticut has been at least a double-digit favorite, it’s covered in both of them. The Liberty will be a formidable opponent – at least against the spread. New York is 8-8 ATS this season despite having a 6-10 overall record.
Nevertheless, when I look at the Sun, I see a complete team. They are second in offensive rating, fourth in defensive rating and first in net rating. All of this comes with them playing at an average pace as well.
The Liberty will have to play above their stripes to keep up tonight.
PICK: Sun -10 (-110)
