In a battle between two teams that have been waiting for the end of the season for quite some time, just give me the home team and the small chalk. The Dream have beaten the Liberty in three of the last four meetings. The New York Liberty also lose on the road by an average of 8.2 points, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 14.6 points. It's the Dream by default if forced to pick this game.
