This was supposed to be a close, hard-fought series between the WNBA's two best teams, but Las Vegas has the upper hand after disposing of the Liberty 99-82 in Game 1. Jackie Young was the star on Sunday as she scored a playoff-career high 26 points on 60 percent shooting, including five 3-pointers to go with five rebounds, four assists and three steals. The Aces shot 54.7 percent and outscored New York 53-33 in the second half, and defensively held All-Star guards Sabrina Ionescu and Courtney Vandersloot to a combined 17 points on 6-of-18 shooting. The Liberty have covered just one of their past five games and they are 2-11 ATS the past 13 meetings at Las Vegas and 7-18 ATS the past 25 meetings overall. The Aces have covered four of five at home and their experience from last year's playoff run is obviously an advantage. New York figures to make adjustments and keep this one closer, but play the Aces on the moneyline.
