Aces Betting Preview
The Aces sit with a 30-4 record overall and they are coming off another winning game on Thursday. The Aces scored 94 points against the Chicago Sky and that was enough for the seven point victory. The Aces were led by Jackie Young who finished with 24 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists. The Aces are averaging 93.7 points while their defense is giving up 80.3 points per game. The offense is ranked 1st in the league while the defense is ranked 2nd best in the league. In this game the Aces are going to try and push the pace and run up the score here.
Mystics Betting Preview
The Mystics comes into this game with a 15-18 record overall but they are coming off a loss in the last game. The Mystics scored 64 points, but the defense gave up 68 points, and that led to the loss. The Mystics only scored 14 points in the 4th quarter. The Mystics are averaging 80.5 points while their defense is giving up 81.8 points per game. The offense is ranked 8th in the league while the defense is ranked 5th. Elena Delle Donne missed the last game with injury and her status seems up in the air for this game. She is averaging 17.4 points and if she can’t go, this is another big loss.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Aces offense is elite and they are going to have no issue running up the score. Even if Delle Donne is able to go in this game, I just don’t see the Mystics scoring enough points here. The Aces scored 94 points in the last game and they are going to score at least that here. The Mystics won’t be keeping up, and the Aces are going to cover the spread. Back the Aces against the spread.
