The Las Vegas Aces Are Just Getting Started

Aces vs Wings Predictions Fewer Scoring Chances For The Wings

The WNBA Commissioner’s Cup will continue with tonight’s two-game slate. It’ll begin with the Las Vegas Aces on the road against the Dallas Wings.

The Aces are currently 4-2 in the WNBA. The former champions are going for a three-peat but just lost to the Atlanta Dream, 78-74. While it’s still early in the season, the Aces haven’t looked as good as they did to start last season.

That said, they have a loaded roster and can match up with any team very well.

Meanwhile, the Wings have lost two consecutive games to the Connecticut Sun and the Minnesota Lynx. They had been on a five-game road trip on the WNBA schedule but are finally back home after going 2-3 in those games.

A trip home will feel good, but that could also mean we see a tired Dallas Wings team against one of the WNBA’s best teams.

Therefore, the Aces are still -9 on the road, with the total at 169.

Our Aces vs Wings predictions for tonight’s game are below.

Aces vs Wings Predictions & Trends

That said, over the last ten games, the Aces are 8-2 straight up, but the Wings are 7-3 ATS.

A’ja Wilson Will Be No. 1 All-Time

With the WNBA landing more fans this season, it’s time to explain why A’ja Wilson will go down as the WNBA’s best player of all time.

She’s already won two championships and has a Finals MVP. In addition, she’s won the MVP twice and the Defensive Player of the Year in two seasons. In 2022, Wilson won the MVP and Defensive Player of the Year awards simultaneously.

Wilson has also landed four All-WNBA team honors and has made five All-Star games. She also won the Rookie of the Year in 2018 and has made three All-Defense teams.

With so much time left in her career, A’ja Wilson can go down as the greatest player in the WNBA.

Dallas’ Turnovers Are a Big Problem

The Dallas Wings had a chance to defeat the Minnesota Lynx on the road. However, the game got away from them in the fourth quarter after they committed 11 turnovers, which gave the Lynx 14 points in that quarter.

Of the 11 turnovers, the Lynx added seven steals and denied several passes from Dallas, which ultimately decided the game.

Dallas will need to do better late in games to keep turnovers down and earn better WNBA results.

Trust The Aces

The Las Vegas Aces aren’t playing as good as the previous two seasons. But it’ll come. The Aces have scored 86.5 points per game, which leads the WNBA heading into tonight.

That said, the Aces have also added the most possessions per 40 minutes and rank first in free throw percentage at 83.9%. Additionally, Las Vegas scored .94 points per play and added 47.8% of points from the two-point range.

On the other hand, the Wings have added 64.7% of points from inside the arc and have scored only 18.7% of points from downtown. They’re not very balanced and score the majority of their points inside the arc.

The Aces mainly keep WNBA teams away from the foul line, allowing only 14.5% of points from the foul line. However, they’ve allowed opponents to shoot 41.3% from downtown to begin the year. That rate should drop eventually; there’s a good chance it’s in this game.

The Wings have only shot 33.3% from downtown and were dead last in 3-point shooting last year.

Meanwhile, Dallas is effective on the offensive glass, adding 12 offensive rebounds per game. They’re also No. 1 in the WNBA in offensive rebound rate. Knowing the Aces rarely get offensive rebounds, that would typically be a good sign for the Wings.

However, in this game, Las Vegas is No. 1 in the WNBA in defensive rebounding and likely won’t give up double-digit offensive rebounds.

Finally, Las Vegas ranks first in the assist-turnover ratio with nearly two assists per turnover. Dallas can’t say the same. Instead, the Wings rank 11th in the WNBA in assist-turnover ratio with only about 1.08 assists per every turnover.

The Wings are in trouble with fewer second chances, more turnovers, and weak shot-making. That said, our Aces vs Wings predictions are like the Aces- 9 (-108) in tonight’s matchup.
