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 Las Vegas Aces are allowing 32.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.5 rebounds per game. The Las Vegas Aces have lost three of their last five road games.
The New York Liberty look for a fifth straight win to get a game above a .500 record. The New York Liberty are averaging 79.6 points on 42 percent shooting and allowing 82.3 points on 42.3 percent shooting. Tina Charles is averaging 19.2 points and 8.4 rebounds while Kia Nurse is averaging 16.7 points and 2.1 assists. Amanda Zahui B. is the third double-digit scorer and Asia Durr is grabbing 1.5 rebounds. The New York Liberty are shooting 32 percent from beyond the arc and 78.9 percent from the free throw line. The New York Liberty are allowing 33.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.8 rebounds per game. The New York Liberty have split their last six home games.
The Aces are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference, 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Liberty are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games and 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 home games. The Aces are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in New York and 9-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The under is 9-4 in Liberty last 13 vs. Western Conference. The over is 5-1 in Aces last 6 overall.
Both of these teams have a double-digit win over the other, but the Las Vegas Aces 35-point win in the last meeting was far more impressive. The New York Liberty are playing their best ball of the season, but I'm not sure how much I trust them even with this recent run, and they're still losing at home by an average of 0.9 points. It's only a matter of time before Vegas gets this going and win it wins, it's usually comfortably. I'll eat the chalk.
