The New York Liberty take on the Minnesota Lynx. Check out our WNBA odds series for our Liberty Lynx prediction, odds, and pick. Find out how to watch Liberty Lynx.

The New York Liberty might have received an early-season wake-up call earlier this week. In their most recent game, the Liberty — installed as double-digit favorites over the Chicago Sky at home — lost outright and suffered their first defeat of the young WNBA season. The game wasn't a blowout, but it wasn't razor-close, either. The Liberty got torched for 90 points in a 90-81 loss. The Liberty had won their first four games of the season, but with the exception of a massive blowout of the Indiana Fever, they had not dominated the competition. They were good enough to win, but everyone could see that this team — which went 32-8 in the 2023 WNBA regular season and reached the WNBA Finals — was not clicking. The crispness, the precision, the smoothness we are used to seeing from the Liberty when they are in full flow, were not yet apparent. The ingredients are there for this team to be great and potentially dethrone the Las Vegas Aces as WNBA champions in 2024. However, the fluidity and cohesion which mark this team at its best have not consistently emerged. We will see if the loss to Chicago jolts this team back into focus and creates a higher level of play.

The Minnesota Lynx very nearly moved to 3-0 earlier this week, but they lost by one point on the road against the Connecticut Sun, the only unbeaten team left in the WNBA. The Lynx had a late four-point lead but couldn't hold it. We will see if Minnesota can bounce back in this game, which starts just after noon local (Central) time in Minneapolis. Will the daytime start have an effect on how these teams perform?

Why The Liberty Could Cover The Spread

The Liberty are a top team in the WNBA. They did lose to Chicago earlier this week, but at 4-1, the Liberty are still on pace to match their 32-8 record from last season, which would very likely mean a top-two seed in the WNBA playoffs. Having lost to the Sky at home, the Liberty are likely to refocus and play a much better game here in Minnesota. If they do play really well, chances are they will not only win, but cover the spread.

Why The Lynx Could Cover The Spread

The Liberty have not been convincing this season. They are not covering spreads with regularity. In fact, they have not covered the spread in all but one of their games. Their offense is not flourishing, and they allowed 90 points to Chicago in their loss to the Sky. The Lynx are catching the Liberty at the right time. They're playing at home. Minnesota nearly beat the Connecticut Sun on the road and is playing quality basketball. This game lines up well for the Lynx, who are getting six whole points at home.

Final Liberty-Lynx Prediction & Pick

The Liberty should be better in this game than they were versus Chicago, but the Lynx are playing well and are getting six points. Stay away and wait for a live play.

Final Liberty-Lynx Prediction & Pick: Liberty -6
