Liberty vs Mercury Betting Pick
This game will be played at Footprint Center at 10:00 PM ET on Saturday, August 6, 2022.
The New York Liberty and Phoenix Mercury are both in the playoff race in the WNBA. Both teams are fighting for the final playoff spots as the regular season winds down. On Saturday night, they face off in a huge game in Phoenix. In our WNBA picks for tonight, we examine Liberty vs Mercury in a game that could help decide once and for all who gets into the postseason.
Why Bet The Liberty:
✅ The Liberty are playing so much better than the Mercury going into this game. They have won three straight games, while the Mercury have lost three straight. Granted, the Mercury have been playing on the road while the Liberty have been at home. But the Liberty should be able to keep things rolling to really help their chances of grabbing a playoff spot.
✅ The Mercury did beat the Liberty at home earlier this season, just before the All-Star break. But that was on the second night of a back to back for the Liberty. New York had just beaten Las Vegas the night before in a game that had a very fast pace to it. Here, a more rested Liberty team should be able to take care of business on the road.
✅ Diana Taurasi is questionable with a quad injury coming into this matchup. She missed Wednesday’s game against the Connecticut Sun due to that injury. Taurasi will probably play at home in such a significant game. But she is not at 100%, and that will undoubtedly hurt the Mercury in a game they need to win.
New York Liberty
The New York Liberty have won three straight coming into this game with the Phoenix Mercury. That has moved them up to seventh place in the WNBA standings. But they are just a half-game up on the ninth place Mercury, meaning that the winner of this game will be ahead of the loser when the final buzzer sounds on Saturday night.
For the Liberty, the key to this game is their advantage on the interior. Both teams have guards who can light it up from the perimeter. But the trio of Stefanie Dolson, Natasha Howard, and Han Xu cannot be matched by the Mercury. Look for the Liberty to take full advantage of that early and often.
The Phoenix Mercury struggled during their East coast road trip. They come into Saturday night having lost three straight games. But they could be as healthy as they have been in a long time tonight. That would be huge given that they are currently on the outside looking in as it pertains to the WNBA playoff picture.
Diana Taurasi could be back for the Mercury after missing a game with a quad injury. Diamond DeShields is also back after missing an extended period of time. If both play on Saturday, that would present a dimension that the Mercury have not seen in quite a while, at a time when they need it the most.
