The WNBA schedule for Friday includes the New York Liberty hosting the Chicago Sky as New York tries to bounce back from their recent loss. Meanwhile, Chicago, a team near the bottom of the standings, is looking to push their winning streak to three games. Can the Sky gain some strong momentum to move closer to the top eight teams of the league? Here's the latest WNBA game preview including matchup odds and how to watch the Sky vs. Liberty game by live stream feed or on television Friday night.

WNBA game preview

The Chicago Sky (5-12) visit New York with a surprising two-game winning streak.

Among those wins was a shocking blowout of the Minnesota Lynx in Chicago nearly a week ago. Courtney Vandersloot led her team with 26 points to help the team in capturing the 100-76 victory.

Chicago is still second-to-last in the WNBA standings, but with more momentum, could possibly move closer to the top eight of the league's teams. Right now, the No. 8 Dallas Wings are 9-11 on the season, having played three more games than Chicago.

Tonight's game features a New York Liberty squad that is 8-8 overall but 5-3 at home. The team features recently-named Eastern Conference WNBA All-Star Game starter, Tina Charles. The New York Liberty center is averaging 20.8 Points Per Game, good for second-best in the league.

She's also third in the WNBA in rebounding with over nine boards on average per night. New York dropped their last game 81-69 at Phoenix but will try to bounce back against one of the league's lower-tier teams.

Odds makers are giving the home team a point spread of 7.5 points in their favor. On the money line, New York is a -325 to -350 favorite at various books, with the Chicago Sky listed from +270 to slightly higher.

The over/under points total is at 162 points per game in various books.
