Randy’s Pick

The Las Vegas Aces had their way in game 1 and another beat down would surprise nobody given how they’ve played all season. The Chicago Sky couldn’t get anything going offensively. However, I’m just not eager to leave this many free points on the table in a playoff game. The Sky are fighting for their playoff lives, and I’d expect a better effort with their season on the line. We’re getting 17.5 points in a playoff game. It’s Sky or pass for me.
