Aces vs Liberty Betting Pick
Aces vs Liberty Under 172
Why Bet on the Under:
✅ The four meetings between the Aces and Liberty have seen three unders and one over. All three of those unders came by at least 10 points, and we should see another relatively low-scoring affair here.
✅ The offenses of the Aces and Liberty get a ton of attention, and understandably so. But these teams are both in the top-three in the league in defensive rating, and we should see the defenses continue to run things in this rivalry.
This game will be played at Barclays Center at 7:00 PM ET on Monday, August 28, 2023.
Las Vegas Aces
The Las Vegas Aces are coming off of a loss heading into Monday’s clash with the Liberty. That loss came in Washington to a Mystics team that finally had some of its stars healthy and on the floor. Here, the Mystics will look to atone for that loss, and make one last statement against the Liberty as the regular season draws nearer to its conclusion.
For the Aces, making things easier on A’ja Wilson will be a key to this game. Wilson has had her share of struggles against the Liberty this year, as the length of Jonquel Jones and Breanna Stewart can make things tougher than usual for the MVP candidate for Vegas.
New York Liberty
Meanwhile, the New York Liberty have won three games in a row entering this super team showdown, claiming back to back games over the Sun and Lynx on the road over the past few days. Now, the Liberty are back at home, and will look for a performance similar to the one they put forth in their other meeting with the Aces at home this season.
For that to happen, the health of Marine Johannes will be key for New York, as the reserve sharpshooter from France is questionable with a foot injury. Johannes made huge contributions for the Liberty in their Commissioners Cup final victory over the Aces. If she can play here, it would be a huge lift for New York.
