Free Betting Pick: Las Vegas Aces -2
Washington’s high scorer Elena Delle Donne is questionable for the game after sitting out the last game due to a nasal fracture. If Delle Donne plays, she will not be 100%. Las Vegas has won four straight and has the best front court in Liz Cambage, A’ja Wilson and DearIca Hamby. The three will dominate down low and Kayla McBride will control the perimeter leading the Aces to the win. Final Score Prediction, Las Vegas Aces win and cover ATS 82-72.
