The Dallas Wings have found themselves in close games all season long due to a fast paced style that hurts them defensively. The Las Vegas Aces are a young club that also has defensive issues, but they've found ways to win games recently and are actully outscoring clubs by 1.8 points in their last five games. It just doesn't make much sense to lay double-digit chalk in a game where both teams love to trade buckets far too often.
