The Wings are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Aces are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 18-4 in Wings last 22 overall. The under is 7-2 in Aces last 9 home games. The Wings are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Las Vegas and 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Dallas Wings have the offensive horses to compete in this series, and they had some success against the Aces this season. However, the Aces have been so dominant this season and looked even better in two playoff games that I'm scared to step in front of them. When the Aces turn it up, only the Liberty have shown they can consistently put up a fight. I'd need an extra bucket or two to consider the Wings. Give me the Aces in a double-digit home win.
