Shane’s Free Pick
The Aces looked a bit lost right now and they are going to struggle again in this game. In the last game against the Mystics, the Aces offense only scored 62 points and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going in this game. Look for the Mystics to score at least 83 points like they did in the last game and that is going to be the difference here. Back the Mystics against the spread.
