The road team has won both meetings between these teams this season, and this game pretty much determines who comes away with the top seed in the playoffs, so it's safe to say it's a massive contest. The Chicago Sky are probably the better and more consistent team here overall, but it's Las Vegas that's at home, and that usually means something in these sorts of spots. The Sky also didn't look good, mainly defensively, in their last effort against Seattle. I'll take my chances with the Aces at home in this contest.
