The Aces are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 0 days rest and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference. The Liberty are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Wednesday games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 2 days rest. The Aces are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in New York and 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
This is a game where the Las Vegas Aces could get blown out, as they continue to be horrible defensively and are on the end of a back to back that included overtime last night. Even though the Aces are a young club, we could see some tired legs here. However, I'm not laying double-digit chalk with the New York Liberty, a team that's being outscored by 0.6 points on the season and is getting little consistent production outside of Charles. This has the feel of a back and forth offensive game and a contest where the Aces can hang around, getting just within the number.
