The under is 6-1 in Aces last 7 overall. The under is 16-6 in Mystics last 22 home games. The Aces are 14-5 ATS in the last 19 meetings in Washington and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Las Vegas Aces are one of the hotter teams in the league right now, and they have the offense to bury anybody who isn't ready to match their energy. However, this line is disrespectful toward a good Mystics team that just went into two wars with a hot Storm club. When these teams met a little over a month ago, the Aces won by one point in overtime. I get the Aces are the better team overall, and they're fighting for that top seed, but the Mystics are far from push overs. At home, give me the free points in a game Washington could win outright.
