The Aces are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest, 15-7 ATS in their last 22 vs. Eastern Conference and 3-11 ATS in their last 14 Sunday games. The Liberty are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 Sunday games and 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 home games. The Aces are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in New York and 14-3 ATS in the last 17 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Liberty last 5 overall. The under is 4-1 in Aces last 5 overall.
The Las Vegas Aces are a team that will only get better as the season plays out and the New York Liberty are showing similar issues they had last season. The Aces have also smoked the Liberty in the last three meetings. With that said, this feels like too many points to lay against a Liberty team that may not win but usually competes. The Liberty had their moments against Washington and could have beaten the Sparks, so process is being made. The Aces win, but I want the points in this contest.
