The Aces are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite, 1-6 ATS in their last 7 playoff games as a favorite and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Sun are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Aces last 5 overall. 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 are the more talented team and should be winning this series, but they're not playing like it and are a fourth quarter away in game two from getting swept. The Connecticut Sun continue to get disrespected from oddsmakers and continue to win, and they're now 4-1 SU in the playoffs. While the Aces bouncing back would surprise nobody, it's hard to turn down free points with the Sun based on how they've played.
