The Las Vegas Aces and Indiana Fever face off in their eighth game of the WNBA season inside the bubble at IMG Academy on Tuesday.
The Indiana Fever have had some struggles at times this season but they are coming off an impressive win against the Washington Mystics. In the last game, the Fever’s offense was strong putting up 91 points and that led to the victory. In that last game, Kelsey Mitchell was the difference for the team putting up 29 points. The Fever this season are averaging 84.9 points while their defense has given up 87.3 points per game.
All season long the star of the show has been Mitchell who is averaging 20.3 points and 3.1 assists per game. Candice Dupree has also found a lot of success putting up 14.7 points and six rebounds per game. In this game the Fever need the offense to be good.
On the other side of this matchup is the Las Vegas Aces who have won five of their seven games inside the bubble and coming into this game they have won three games in a row. In the last game, the Aces outscored the New York Liberty 20-15 in the last quarter and that was enough to come away with the victory. On the season the Aces are averaging 86.7 points per game while their defense has given up 80.7 points per game.
On offense, the Liberty are led by A’ja Wilson who has been one of the best players in the WNBA this season averaging 22.3 points and 8.9 rebounds per game. Angel McCoughtry has also found a lot of success averaging 14.6 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.
The Aces are the better team and they are going to have no issue running up the score against the Fever in this game. Look for Wilson to have a big game for Las Vegas and they will win this by double digits at least. Back the Aces to win this game and cover the spread.
