The Las Vegas Aces and Chicago Sky meet Tuesday in WNBA action at the Wintrust Arena.

The Las Vegas Aces look for another victory after winning five of their last eight games. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 82 points on 43.4 percent shooting and allowing 85.4 points on 44.3 percent shooting. A'ja Wilson is averaging 21 points and 8.7 rebounds while Kayla McBride is averaging 19 points and 2.8 assists. Tamera Young is grabbing 4.8 rebounds and Kelsey Plum is dishing 3.8 assists. The Las Vegas Aces are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 76.4 percent from the free throw line. The Las Vegas Aces are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.2 rebounds per game. The Las Vegas Aces have split their last six road games.

The Chicago Sky look for a spark of consistency here after splitting their last eight games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 81.3 points on 43.5 percent shooting and allowing 87.7 points on 46.2 percent shooting. Allie Quigley is averaging 16.7 points and 2.8 assists while Diamond DeShields is averaging 13.5 points and 5.1 rebounds. Courtney Vandersloot is the third double-digit scorer and Cheyenne Parker is grabbing 6.8 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 37.3 percent from beyond the arc and 81 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.7 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have split their last six home games.

The Aces are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Eastern Conference and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Sky are 9-19 ATS in their last 28 home games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Tuesday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Aces are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the over is 10-2 in the last 12 meetings.

The Chicago Sky have improved their play as of late, but they're still being outscored by 6.4 points on the season, 2.4 points in their last five games and 3.9 points at home. I'm not sure why anybody would lay five points chalk with this club despite the recent slight turnaround. The Las Vegas Aces are a young, talented squad that's starting to get their feet under them and playing with confidence. Las Vegas is shooting 47.1 percent from the field and averaging 86.8 points in its last five games. I'm not sold on the Chicago Sky at all. Give me my free points. 

Las Vegas Aces +5
