Free WNBA Pick: New York Liberty -1.5

The UNDER is a solid choice here, but the play is New York. The Liberty have only covered the number in five of the last 16, but have Natasha Howard back on the court and the 6-foot-2 forward scored 30 points in just her first game back after missing 19 games. Sabrina Ionescu has become an overall force for New York leading the Liberty in rebounding and assists and is third in scoring. Seattle has failed to cover the number in eight of its last 10 and in four of the last five played on the road. Final Score Prediction, New York Liberty wins and covers ATS 73-70
