The Aces are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 WNBA Championship games. The under is 5-1 in Sun last 6 overall. The under is 7-3 in Aces last 10 home games. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
All 3 games between these teams this season were competitive and while the Aces won 2 of those meetings, it's the Sun who have won 4 of the last 6 meetings. The Las Vegas Aces are going to get the benefit of the doubt at home, but as I've said all year, the Sun are crazy talented and a team I'm going to back in the underdog role. In fact, the Sun have covered 9 of their last 10 road games and 16 of their last 21 games overall. The Sun simply put money in your pocket. The Aces have failed to cover 12 of their last 16 home games. Give me the points with the road team.
