The Connecticut Sun and Las Vegas Aces meet Sunday in WNBA action at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

The Connecticut Sun look for a win after winning seven of their last eight games. The Connecticut Sun are averaging 78.5 points on 41.1 percent shooting and allowing 75.5 points on 42.8 percent shooting. Jonquel Jones is averaging 15.4 points and 10.2 rebounds while Courtney Williams is averaging 11.8 points and 3.4 assists. Jasmine Thomas is the third double-digit scorer and Alyssa Thomas is dishing three assists. The Connecticut Sun are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 70.2 percent from the free throw line. The Connecticut Sun are allowing 28.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.3 rebounds per game. The Connecticut Sun have lost five of their last seven road games.

The Las Vegas Aces look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 80.5 points on 42.4 percent shooting and allowing 75.8 points on 38.8 percent shooting. Liz Cambage is averaging 15.5 points and eight 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 7.2 rebounds. The Las Vegas  Aces are shooting 37.4 percent from beyond the arc and 77.5 percent from the free throw line. The Las Vegas Aces are allowing 32.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.7 rebounds per game. The Las Vegas Aces have won seven of their last nine home games.

The Sun are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest, 2-7 ATS in their last 9 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Aces are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games. The Sun are 5-1-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Las Vegas and 9-3-1 ATS in the last 13 meetings. The under is 5-1-1 in Aces last 7 overall. The under is 10-4 in Sun last 14 Sunday games.

The Connecticut Sun aren't the same team on the road this season, as they shoot 37.8 percent from the field and lose by an average of 5.5 points. We just saw the Sun get their boots smoked by the Minnesota Lynx as three-point favorites. The Las Vegas Aces may be banged up, but they're still finding ways to win games and have been one of the better home teams in the league. The Aces should get the job done here.

Pick:
Las Vegas Aces -1.5
