Storms at Aces picks and predictions


Aces 91, Storm 71


The Aces (-2000) will cost you a pretty penny, as a bettor would need to risk $100 for every $5 of profit with a Las Vegas victory. There is just no reason to ever bet such a heavy moneyline favorite. Even if you were to include Vegas in a multi-team parlay ticket, betting such a strong favorite sucks the value right out of your ticket.


Against the spread

The ACES -16.5 (-115) are a strong play laying the points on their home floor.

The Storm +16.5 (-105) has been eliminated from the postseason chase. While Seattle was impressive last time out in L.A., that’s against a lowly Sparks team, and not the top team in the WNBA. Las Vegas will step on the gas in the 2nd half, grabbing the easy win and cover.
