The Aces are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games. The Sun are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The under is 6-1 in Aces last 7 vs. Eastern Conference. The under is 7-1 in Sun last 8 overall. The Aces are 2-5-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings. The under is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings.
The Las Vegas Aces are in a great spot as they won the series opener despite not shooting the ball well, and then they cruised to a game 2 victory with the offense showing more life. It's probably clear at this point that the Connecticut Sun don't have the horses to win this series. With that said, the Sun continue to be extremely profitable against the number and I don't believe they're going to go down quietly, especially with things shifting back home. The Sun can get physical and grind their way to a win to at least extend this thing another few days. I'll lay the bucket with the Sun at home.
