The Fever are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Friday games, 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Liberty are 6-18-2 ATS in their last 26 home games, 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 Friday games and 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest. The Fever are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in New York and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 4-1-1 in Liberty last 6 overall. The over is 3-0-1 in Fever last 4 vs. Eastern Conference.
Both of these teams are waiting for the offseason to arrive and aren't playing well heading into this game, especially the Liberty who are losing their last five games by an average of 14.2 points. However, the Liberty just beat the Fever a couple of weeks ago and the Fever are losing on the road by an average of 8.1 points. Backing either of these teams isn't ideal, but there's some value with the Liberty and the free bucket at home.
