Chicago Sky have a 7-12 record (9-10 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third to last place of the Eastern Conference.

Las Vegas Aces have an 8-12 record (10-10 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit on the last place of the Western Conference. They have won three of their last four matches and in their last game they won at home against the Connecticut Sun with a 94-90 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by A’ja Wilson with 21 ppg, adding a team high 8.7 boards per game.

In their two previous meetings earlier this season, each team has won at home (Las Vegas by 4 and Chicago by 5 points). Chicago are 5-5 at home this season, while Las Vegas are 3-7 on the road. Both teams are almost equal offensively, scoring 82 and 81.3 ppg each. They are also very close both in field goal percentage (43.5% to 43.4%) and in assists made (20 to 19.9), while Chicago are the worse defensive squad, allowing 87.7 ppg to Las Vegas’ second-worse of 85.4. Chicago have a better 3-point percentage (37.3% to 35.8%), while Las Vegas commit fewer turnovers per game (13.8 to 15.5).
