Top WNBA Betting Odds & Pick: Liberty vs. Sky

New York Liberty vs. Chicago Sky,  8:00 PM EST

Winning three straight to close out the regular season, including a critical play-in game Sunday vs. the Dream, the Liberty enter the postseason one of the hottest teams in the league. They’ll now take on the Sky, who finished the season with the same record as the #1 seed Aces, losing via tie breaker to get the #2 seed.

Destroying the Mercury 82-67 in their final regular season game, the Sky are anchored by WNBA veteran Candace Parker, who, along with Allie Quigley and Azura Stevens, has turned into one of the top trios in the league. I like for them to bring the Liberty back to earth in Game 1, getting a runaway victory on their home court.

Bet: Chicago Sky -7.5 (-110 at DraftKings

What is a betting spread?

spread is an oddsmaker’s way of “evening the playing field” so that the favorite and underdog have an equal chance of attracting bettors. In many sporting events, one team is much more likely to defeat its opponent. However, with a spread, the underdog is given an artificial number of points with which it can overcome its point differential and theoretically beat the favorite.
