Sky and Aces Still Fight for Positioning
Both Chicago and Las Vegas continue to try to secure the best possible seeding for the upcoming playoffs.
The Aces are currently at 20-7 overall and sit in second place in league standings. They also have clinched a spot for the postseason. Las Vegas, riding a three-game winning streak is currently one game behind the Connecticut Sun for top spot in league standings. This could make it interesting for the first seed in final weeks.
Leading the way for the Aces this season has been A’ja Wilson and Liz Cambage, with Wilson averaging 18.6 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.4 blocks and Cambage averaging 14.7 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists a game. Cambage recently tested positive for COVID-19 and could miss Saturday’s game.
The Sky are currently sitting at 14-14 for the year but have lost two consecutive games going into the match against the Aces.

By the end of the day, don’t be surprised to see the Aces go on the road to take down the Sky in Chicago, followed by the Wings defending home court and extending the Dream’s losing streak in Arlington.
The spread for the Las Vegas-Chicago game is the best, with the Aces being 1.5-point favorites. Las Vegas is a solid road team with a record of 9-4 away. Chicago is only 4-8 away from home. You should support the Aces for that 1.5 point.
