Seattle Storm vs. Las Vegas Aces Betting Preview

There is a big game set to take place in the WNBA on Friday night as the Seattle Storm will visit the Las Vegas Aces. As if there wasn’t already enough intrigue with this game, this matchup will also be a part of the Commissioner’s Cup. 

Seattle is coming into this game with a ton of momentum as they have gone 6-3 so far to begin the year. The Storm are jut 1-2 against Western Conference opponents this season, but this will be the first matchup against the Las Vegas Aces. 

Las Vegas is coming into this game off of a long layoff, and that should have them fresh and ready for this game. The Aces are sitting at 5-2 on the year, but they did suffer a disappointing loss in their most recent game. 

The Las Vegas Aces are 8.5-point betting favorites in this game, and the over/under line is set at 167.5 total points. 

Seattle Stopping Opponents

The Seattle Storm are 5-2 for a very specific reason, and that’s because this team has locked in on the defensive end of the floor. Seattle is currently allowing just 78.2 points per game, and that’s much better than most of the league. 

This team is also scoring 84 points per game, and that has made them dangerous against the other teams on their schedule. Seattle isn’t afraid to play fast on offense, but they might want to slow things down a bit in this matchup. 

Guard Jewell Lloyd is having a big season for the Storm as she currently leads the team with 19.2 points per game. 

Aces Want to Push

The Las Vegas Aces want to play extremely fast when they have the basketball, and that has allowed them to average over 87 points per game. A’Ja Wilson looks like the early leader for the MVP Award as she is averaging 27.9 points and 12.4 rebounds per game. 

While Wilson has been the best player on this roster, there are some other players that have had a big season as well. Las Vegas needs to continue scoring points as they just haven’t been able to get stops. 

This team is allowing over 80 points per game, and that will need to change if they want to win another title. 

Storm Battle Tough in Loss

This should be a great matchup, and there is definitely going to be some rust on the part of the Las Vegas Aces in this matchup. Seattle comes into this game with a ton of momentum, and that will allow them to be competitive early in this game. 

At some point the Aces will find a way to take control of this game, but it’s not going to be an easy win at all. Look for the poor defense of Las Vegas to allow Seattle to hang around a bit in this matchup. 

Take the 8.5 points and back the Seattle Storm, but it will be the Seattle Storm that are able to pick up a win in this Commissioner’s Cup matchup.
