The Sun are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference. The Aces are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 vs. Eastern Conference, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The under is 5-1-1 in Aces last 7 vs. Eastern Conference. The Sun are 5-2-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Las Vegas and 10-4-1 ATS in the last 15 meetings.
The Connecticut Sun appear to have turned their season around over the last week, but they're still one fo the worst offenses in the league and are hard to trust against better teams in this league. The Las Vegas Aces are one of the hotter teams in the league with a balanced attack, and they've been profitable for bettors while these outright wins pile up. The Sun need a big performance here for me to trust them. Until then, I'll lay the number with the Aces.
