The Las Vegas Aces look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 81.3 points on 42.7 percent shooting and allowing 76.5 points on 39 percent shooting. Liz Cambage is averaging 15.8 points and 8.3 rebounds while A'ja Wilson is averaging 15.4 points and 6.6 rebounds. Kayla McBride is the third double-digit scorer and Dearica Hamby is grabbing 7.6 rebounds. The Las Vegas Aces are shooting 38.3 percent from beyond the arc and 77.8 percent from the free throw line. The Las Vegas Aces are allowing 32.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.8 rebounds per game. The Las Vegas Aces have won four of their last six road games.
The Chicago Sky look for a statement win after winning six of their last eight games. The Chicago Sky are averaging 82.3 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 80.9 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Diamond DeShields is averaging 14.9 points and 5.9 rebounds while Allie Quigley is averaging 13.6 points and 2.8 assists. Courtney Vandersloot is the third double-digit scorer and Jantel Lavender is grabbing 6.9 rebounds. The Chicago Sky are shooting 34.8 percent from beyond the arc and 82.5 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Sky are allowing 31.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36 rebounds per game. The Chicago Sky have won their last five home games.
The Aces are 5-14 ATS in their last 19 Sunday games, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs. Eastern Conference and 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 road games. The Sky are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Sunday games, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 21-8-1 ATS in their last 30 games overall. The Aces are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Chicago and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The over is 6-0 in Sky last 6 overall. The over is 3-0-1 in Aces last 4 overall.
The Las Vegas Aces are expected to have Wilson for this game, but they're still a team that's 10-16 ATS this season and just 4-7 ATS on the road. The Chicago Sky are quietly one of the hottest teams in the league right now, and that includes winning their last five games by an average of 6.2 points while shooting nearly 46 percent from the field. At this point you have to start believing in what the Sky are selling. In a near toss-up, I'll back the Sky, a team that's playing with great confidence at the moment.
