Bet Tuesday WNBA: Seattle O'Sullivan picks the Las Vegas Aces vs Connecticut Sun in a battle of top tier teams
Las Vegas Aces at Connecticut Sun, 7pm EDT
The Picks: Sun -1.5 (-102), Sun ML (-114)
Seattle O’Sullivan so far: 0-0
An early-season tilt between two top contenders, and right now the two top records. The Aces have the league’s best offense at 91.4 ppg; the Sun the best defense at 74.3 ppg (though the Aces are second). I think the key won’t be wins but rather a loss. In their respective last games, the Aces cruised to a 23-point blowout at home against the struggling Indiana Fever, while the Sun lost in overtime on the road against the equally-struggling Minnesota Lynx. In fact, both Sun losses thus far have been in overtime. Returning home for two tough games (followed by over a week of rest) should motivate Connecticut – I’m giving the 1.5 points and also covering my bases by putting a little more on a straight Sun victory.
