Las Vegas Aces vs Phoenix Mercury Prediction

The Las Vegas Aces have owned the Mercury over the years and that includes a 9 point win over them last week. The Aces should be favored at home for that alone. It also doesn’t hurt that the Aces are at home and have yet had to travel. With all that said, the Aces have been out shot through 2 games despite the undefeated start, and they’ve failed to cover their first two games as well. The Aces have failed to cover 9 of their last 14 games as double-digit favorites. I’ll take a shot with the Mercury and the free buckets.
