The Las Vegas Aces should be the favorite here because they're the more talented team and have their backs against the wall. However, the Connecticut Sun have been a different team over the last three weeks and are undefeated in the playoffs, which includes a beatdown game one victory. Sometimes you just ride the hot hand until it cools off. Give me the Connecticut Sun and the points.
