The Washington Mystics and Las Vegas Aces meet Friday in WNBA action at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Elena Delle Donne is averaging 17.2 points and 8.9 rebounds while Emma Meesseman is averaging 13.3 points and 2.3 assists. Ariel Atkins is the third double-digit scorer and Kristi Toliver is dishing 5.3 assists.

The Las Vegas Aces look for a victory after winning six of their last eight games. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 82.7 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 78.2 points on 39.1 percent shooting. A'ja Wilson is averaging 17.1 points and 7.4 rebounds while Liz Cambage is averaging 14.9 points and 7.3 rebounds. Kayla McBride is the third double-digit scorer and Dearica Hamby is grabbing 6.7 rebounds. The Las Vegas  Aces are shooting 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 77.6 percent from the free throw line.

The Mystics are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, 7-19 ATS in their last 26 Friday games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Aces are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games, 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Friday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Mystics are 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Las Vegas and 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The over is 5-1 in Aces last 6 overall. The under is 6-2 in Mystics last 8 overall.

The Washington Mystics already blew the doors off Las Vegas this season on the road, but we're getting the Aces at home in a near pick em. While the Aces have yet to play to their full potential and have been rough against the number, they're still the most talented team in the league and it's only a matter of time before things start clicking. This is a statement game. I'll take the Aces at home.

Pick:
Las Vegas Aces -1
