New York Liberty vs. Chicago Sky Betting Preview

The 2024 WNBA season has already gotten off to a fun start, and now things are heading up during Commissioner’s Cup action. There is a big game on the schedule on Tuesday night as the New York Liberty will visit the Chicago Sky. 

The Liberty are coming into this game as one of the best teams in the league as they are 7-2 through the first nine games. New York has rattled off two straight wins, and that will give them momentum ahead of this matchup. 

Chicago is a team on the rise with a ton of young talent, but that hasn’t led to much success this season. The Sky are sitting at 3-4 on the year, and they just suffered a loss to the Indiana Fever in their most recent game. 

New York is coming into this game as a 6.5-point betting favorite, and the over/under line in this game is set at 162.5 total points. 

Liberty Looking to Score

The New York Liberty are a team that is loaded with talent, and they will be looking to take control of this game on offense. New York is averaging over 86 points per game, and they can put points on the board in a hurry. 

Forward Breanna Stewart is leading the way with 17.9 points per game, but New York has done a great job of spreading the ball around. If New York is going to win this game then it’s going to be done on the offensive end of the floor. 

The Liberty have also been solid on defense this season as they are allowing just 76.4 points per game. 

Sky Can Get Stops

The Chicago Sky will try to slow down the pace in this game, and they are holding opponents to just 78 points per game. Chicago doesn’t want this game to turn into a track meet as they just don’t have the depth to keep pace. 

Guard Marina Mabrey is averaging 17 points per game this season, and she will have to play great for Chicago in this game. The Sky are a team that should get better as the year moves along, but there is still some growing pains going on. 

Playing at home should help the Sky in this matchup, but they still have to prove that they can compete with the top teams in the league. 

Sky Fall Short in Loss

The Commissioner’s Cup has created some new excitement in the WNBA, and these games tend to mean more than what goes on throughout the year. While that is definitely the case, this is a matchup that would be fun to follow throughout the year. 

Chicago does have a ton of talent on this roster, but they just don’t have enough proven talent to keep pace with the Liberty. New York has been an explosive offensive team this season, and they will use their offense to take control of this game. 

Take the 6.5 points and bet on the Chicago Sky in this matchup, but it will be the New York Liberty that win this game.
