Will update with trends once they're released.
The Connecticut Sun won game one as big underdogs and had their chances to win game two but collapsed and got outscored by 12 points in the fourth quarter. You can argue that the Sun should have already won this series. The Las Vegas Aces should be favored and probably have the edge here considering they get a second chance at life, but the Sun have played the better basketball through two games and it's hard to ignore free buckets with them and the way they've played throughout these entire playoffs.
A deciding game three, I expect this contest to come down to the wire. I want the free points with the Connecticut Sun.
