The Las Vegas Aces and Minnesota Lynx meet Sunday in WNBA action at the Target Center.

The Las Vegas Aces look for back-to-back wins to get a game above a .500 record. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 85.2 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 76.3 points on 37.4 percent shooting. Kayla McBride is averaging 17.3 points and 5.2 rebounds while Liz Cambage is averaging 15.2 points and six rebounds. A'ja Wilson is the third double-digit scorer and Dearica Hamby is grabbing 6.5 rebounds. The Las Vegas Aces are shooting 36.5 percent from beyond the arc and 76.7 percent from the free throw line. The Las Vegas Aces are allowing 28 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.8 rebounds per game. The Las Vegas Aces have lost two of their last three road games.

The Minnesota Lynx look to snap a three-game losing streak to get a game above a .500 record. The Minnesota Lynx are averaging 75.1 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 73.5 points on 43.3 percent shooting. Sylvia Fowles is averaging 15.1 points and 9.9 rebounds while Odyssey Sims is averaging 13.5 points and 4.8 assists. Napheesa Collier is the third double-digit scorer and Lexie Brown is dishing two assists. The Minnesota Lynx are shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arc and 75.9 percent from the free throw line. The Minnesota Lynx are allowing 28.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.4 rebounds per game. The Minnesota Lynx have split their last four home games.

The Aces are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference, 3-12 ATS in their last 15 Sunday games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Lynx are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 home games, 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 vs. Western Conference and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Aces are 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Minnesota and 7-15-2 ATS in the last 24 meetings. The under is 20-8 in Lynx last 28 overall. The under is 4-0 in Aces last 4 overall.

The Las Vegas Aces are starting to put things together, as two of their last three games resulted in downright beatdowns over the Dream and Liberty. Say what you want about the competition, you don't see blowouts like that in this league often. The Aces are showing signs of slowly turning into the monsters many predicted they'd be. The Minnesota Lynx went from winning four of their first five games to losing that defensive edge and dropping three straight. Unless the Lynx can figure things out quickly, they're going to have a hard time in this contest. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with an Aces club that's starting to roll.

Pick:
Las Vegas Aces -6
