WNBA Minnesota Lynx vs Las Vegas Aces Spread and Prediction.

Last season Minnesota won all three meetings against Las Vegas, winning the only road game with a 70-89 score. Aces have a 2-3 home record so far this season, while Lynx are 3-4 on the road. Aces are better offensively, scoring 81 ppg to Lynx’s 79.8 but they have the second-worse defense in the league, allowing 84.9 ppg to Lynx’s third-best of 79.2. Lynx have better percentages both in field goals (44.2% to 42.2%) and in 3-pointers (35.2% to 33.3%). Aces on the other hand are better in rebounding (36.7 to 36), in assists made (18.6 to 18.2) and in turnovers committed (13.9 to 15.3). Lynx are back on track lately and they are the favorite but Aces have been playing much better as well. Vegas odds give the Lynx a -7.5 spread but don’t expect them to beat the odds as Aces will force a closer game than that.
