Napheesa Collier is averaging 15.8 points and 3.4 assists while Crystal Dangerfield is averaging 15.8 points and 1.9 rebounds.

The Aces are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS loss and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The Lynx are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games. The over is 5-2 in Aces last 7 games as a favorite. The over is 4-1 in Lynx last 5 overall. The Aces are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
These are two of the hotter teams in the league, and while the Las Vegas Aces are probably the better, more talented squad, it's the Minnesota Lynx who continue to get disrespected by oddsmakers and do nothing but win and cover numbers. I have a hard time turning down free points with the Lynx given what we've seen all season.
