New York Liberty vs Connecticut Sun Prediction and WNBA Odds: Recent form

The New York Liberty didn’t have the best of the seasons in 2021 as they failed to go further than the first round. They finished the regular season with a 37.5% percentage which meant that they had to face the challenge of Phoenix Mercury which was certainly a lopsided contest as the New York side bowed out. With a turnaround in sight, the Liberty are all geared up to play the Connecticut Sun with no preparation games for them.

On the other hand, the Connecticut Sun are looking to replicate their 2021 regular-season form but would be looking to go one step further by winning the championship. They had an impeccable win record of more than 80% but a semifinal loss to Chicago Sky meant that the table-toppers had to wait for one more year to go for the big trophy. Their pre-season was on expected lines as they won the lone encounter against Dream by a good margin.
