Kristi Toliver is averaging 17.7 points and three assists while Elena Delle Donne is averaging 16.5 points and 7.3 rebounds.

The Las Vegas Aces are still looking for their first victory after a rough 0-4 start to the season. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 76.8 points on 40.1 percent shooting and allowing 95.5 points on 48.8 percent shooting. A'ja Wilson is averaging 19.5 points and 7.3 rebounds while Tamera Young is averaging 14.8 points and five rebounds. Kayla McBride is the third double-digit scorer and Nia Coffey is grabbing 3.8 rebounds. The Las Vegas Aces are shooting 22.9 percent from beyond the arc and 72.5 percent from the free throw line. The Las Vegas Aces are allowing 46.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.5 rebounds per game. The Las Vegas Aces are 0-1 this season in their new arena.

The Mystics are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Friday games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Aces are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference. The Mystics are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Las Vegas, 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the under is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.

We have one of the best offensive teams in the league against a Las Vegas Aces club that's been set on fire defensively, and they're on the end of a back to back early in the season. If they couldn't play defense before, they're certainly not doing it on tired legs. This game should easily top the total.

Pick:
Over 134.5
