The Los Angeles Sparks have been hit or miss this season in the bubble and haven't had much success against the number. The Las Vegas Aces are due for a breakout performance after some shaky performances themselves, but their offense is clicking during this recent winning streak, and they'll have the best player on the floor in this one.
I'll lay the reasonable chalk.
