The Aces are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games. The Sun are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Western Conference. The under is 6-2-1 in Aces last 9 vs. Eastern Conference. The under is 4-0 in Sun last 4 overall. The Aces are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Connecticut.
The Las Vegas Aces will be eager for a bounce back victory after losing to the Mercury, and they smoked the Sun by 21 points a couple of weeks ago. The Connecticut Sun are playing improved basketball as of late, but I still don't trust them against better competition. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Aces.
