The Phoenix Mercury are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 81 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Mercury are allowing 36.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.3 rebounds per game.
The Las Vegas Aces look to stay hot after winning 11 of their last 12 games. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 87.9 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allowing 79 points on 42.9 percent shooting. A'ja Wilson is averaging 20.3 points and 8.7 rebounds while Angel McCoughtry is averaging 14.7 points and 5.2 rebounds.

The Mercury are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as an underdog and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 vs. Western Conference. The Aces are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Aces last 5 games playing on 2 days rest. The Mercury are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Las Vegas and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
I've said a few times lately that the Phoenix Mercury aren't a team you wantto write off just yet, and they've queitly won three straight games while beating the Lynx last night in the underdog role. There's too much talent with this Mercury squad to just be throwing out these large numbers. Sure, the Las Vegas Aces are on a roll right now, but the Mercury can beat anybody when playing well. Give me the points.
