In Game 2 of this WNBA Semifinal, the top-seeded both in the East and in the league during the regular season Washington Mystics (26-8), after winning a close opening game and taking the 1-0 lead in the series, are hosting once again the 4th in the league Las Vegas Aces (21-13), who want to bounce back and even the series today.
Date/Time: 09-19-2019 20:30 EDT
Spread: Washington Mystics -8.5
Washington Mystics had a 26-8 record (20-13 against the spread) in the regular season and finished first in the whole WNBA. They have won 12 of their last 13 matches and in their last game they won at home against Las Vegas in Game 1 with a 97-95 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Emma Meesseman with 27 ppg and a team high 10 boards per game. She is followed by Elena Delle Donne with 24 ppg, adding 6 boards and a team high 6 dimes per game.
Las Vegas Aces had a 21-13 record (13-21 against the spread) in the regular season and were placed fourth in the league. In their last game they saw a two-game winning streak getting snapped by losing on the road against Washington with a 95-97 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Liz Cambage with 21 ppg, adding a team high 14.5 boards per game. She is followed by Kayla McBride with 17.5 ppg.
In their four previous meetings so far this season the Mystics lead the Aces 3-1 wins and are 1-1 at home (They won by 2 points and lost by 4). Mystics are 15-3 at home so far season, while the Aces are 8-10 on the road. Mystics have the best offense in the league with 92.5 ppg to Aces’ third-best of 81.4 and they also have a better defence, allowing 75.8 ppg to Aces’ 80.6. Mystics have better percentages both in field goals (48% to 42.2%) and in 3-pointers (37.2% to 35.7%). Aces on the other hand grab more rebounds per game (38.8 to 33.3), while Mystics dish more assists (21.9 to 20.9) and commit fewer turnovers per game (11.8 to 14.6). Bookmakers give the Mystics a -8.5 spread but don’t expect them to beat the odds as the guests will force another close game tonight.
