The Las Vegas Aces and Phoenix Mercury meet Thursday in WNBA action at the Footprint Center. Here’s a Phoenix Mercury vs Las Vegas Aces Prediction.

Las Vegas Aces Betting Preview

The Las Vegas Aces need a win to snap a 3-game losing streak. The Aces are 2-2 SU on the road this season. The Las Vegas Aces are averaging 85.7 points on 42.1 percent shooting and allowing 83.9 points on 43.1 percent shooting. A’ja Wilson is averaging 28.3 points and 11.4 rebounds, while Kelsey Plum is averaging 18.7 points and 1.7 rebounds. Jackie Young is the third double-digit scorer and Tiffany Hayes is grabbing 4 rebounds. The Las Vegas Aces are shooting 33.7 percent from beyond the arc and 84.1 percent from the free throw line. The Las Vegas Aces are allowing 39.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.8 rebounds per game.

Phoenix Mercury Betting Preview

The Phoenix Mercury look for a statement win after winning 3 of their last 4 games. The Mercury are 4-1 SU at home this season.

Phoenix Mercury vs Las Vegas Aces Injury Report

The Phoenix Mercury don’t have any players on their injury report. Kierstan Bell is out for the Aces due to a leg injury. Chelsea Gray is questionable for the Aces due to a leg injury.

Phoenix Mercury vs Las Vegas Aces Prediction

The Las Vegas Aces are going to get the benefit of the doubt because of what they are on paper. I also believe Chelsea Gray could make her season debut with her questionable and not listed as out. However, the Aces have been a mess defensively, have lost 3 straight games and re 3-7 ATS on the year. The Aces have also failed to cover 9 of their last 11 games when favorites of 6 or more points. I said in the past that the Phoenix Mercury are a team to watch once they get whole, and they’ve won 3 of their last 4 games while jumping up to the fifth seed in the standings. Griner is also coming off a big time performance. I’ll say it again: the Mercury are a team to watch. Give me the points.
