The Las Vegas Aces take on the Atlanta Dream on Tuesday night. The Aces spoiled Sue Bird’s last-ever home game of the regular season on Sunday. They won 89-81 in a thrilling match from start to finish. They are now 23-10 years old and will be returning home after a long journey.
The Dream lost 81-71 in Minnesota on Sunday. They are 14-19 and hold the seventh seed in the league. With just three games left, every game is critical to Atlanta’s playoff chances. Recently, they also failed to cover seven straight games at the worst possible time.

Las Vegas split its two contests against Atlanta this year. They won by 23 points in their first game in May but lost by 16 points at home a few weeks ago. The Aces’ A’Ja Wilson left the field on Sunday with 29 points and six rebounds. They have several talented scorers and lead the WNBA in points per game.
When the regular season comes to an end, picking the No. 1 can be difficult unless Chicago Sky loses a few games. The Aces will have to be careful not to slip to third place, however, as the Connecticut Sun are just a game behind.
Atlanta is struggling with some injuries that could come back to bite her. They do have exciting rookie Rhyne Howard, however, and she’s averaging 16.1 points per game. She scored 16 points in Sunday’s loss after a 28-point performance on Friday.

The Dream found success against the Aces in July, but that was down to Tiffany Hayes’ 31 points. Now that she’s out, it’s going to be an uphill battle for the dream on Tuesday.

Las Vegas Aces vs. Atlanta Dream Betting Prediction
Atlanta has two key games to end the season against the New York Liberty after Tuesday’s competition. If they could somehow steal that game against Las Vegas, they’d rejoice in their chances of making the playoffs.
Unfortunately, Atlanta’s reality is to lose several players and play against a much more talented team along the way. Expect the Aces to win the season series and look for them to take a commanding lead at half-time.
Prediction: Aces First Half -7 (-115) & Dream Team Total Under 76.5 Points (-110)
