A'ja Wilson is averaging 20.3 points and 8.5 rebounds while Angel McCoughtry is averaging 15.4 points and 4.7 rebounds.

The Aces are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Sky are 20-8-1 ATS in their last 29 games as an underdog and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference. The over is 17-8-2 in Aces last 27 overall. The under is 4-0 in Sky last 4 overall. The Aces are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings in Chicago.
The Chicago Sky are a team I thought highly of heading into the season and they've shown promise, and they also beat Las Vegas back in late July. Getting the Sky and free points is something I'm going to back a lot this season, but the Las Vegas Aces are one of the hotter teams in the league right now and not a club I'm looking to bet against as long as the line is reasonable. We're not being asked to lay a whole lot here. Give me the Aces.
