Here’s what to look for in today’s slate:

Las Vegas Aces on Chicago Sky
15:00 ET, Wintrust Arena, Chicago

row: Aces (-2.5)
Money line:
Total: 168.5 points

Question: there is none

Discarded: Julie Allemand (Delay)

Fantasy should know: Before the season began, new Aces head coach Becky Hammon vowed that Las Vegas would take over three more this year. Last season, the Aces made 162 trophies. So far this season, Las Vegas has 85. Aces averaged almost 26 triples per game this season after averaging just 13.5 tries last season. With a 7-1 record, Las Vegas ranks first in offensive rankings (112.5) and fifth in defensive rankings (97.1). All five starters averaged 10 or more PPGs. Between A’ja Wilson, Kelsey Plum, Jackie Young, Dearica Hamby and Chelsea Gray, they are all choices that should start in fantasy.

Defending champion Sky has a 3-2 record and just welcomed back WNBA Finals Most Valuable Player Kahleah Copper after an incredible overseas season. With Chicago’s full roster, Sky should be able to win more games. The team ranks third in attack rating (103.7) and fourth in defensive rating (96.3). Candace Parker, Courtney Vandersloot, Emma Meesseman and Copper should be started. Averaging 14.3 PPG, 7.7 RPG, 5.2 APG, 1.2 SPG and 1.3 BPG, Parker has been an incredible player to date. Three of his five games have earned him a fantasy score of 40 or more. Parker also has just four rebounds from beyond Candice Dupree for sixth all-time on the WNBA rebound list. Azura Stevens, even in a reserve role with Copper back, is still a good streamer. Stevens is available in 44.7% of the league.

The two teams will meet for the first time this season. It was the Aces who won two of last year’s three games against Sky. Because both teams rank in the top three in terms of PPG, APG, FG percentage, and assist-to-turnover ratio, we can expect a fast-paced game.

Best bet: Over 168.5

Over the first eight games of the season, the Aces have scored 746 points (93.3 PPG). This is the most points from a team in league history in eight games. Over six games this season, Sky has scored 504 points (84 PPG), which is tied for the third most points over six games in franchise history. It will be a high score game with Copper back in the fold for Sky.

Washington Mystics in the Connecticut Sun.
19:00 ET, Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, Conn.

row: Srengenge (-10)
Money line:
Total: 156.5 points

Question: there is none

Discarded: Elena Delle Donne (Rest), Alysha Clark (Health & Safety), Betnijah Laney (knee)

Fantasy should know: With Elena Delle Donne (resting) and Alysha Clark (ill) out tonight, Tianna Hawkins should be your streamer. From a fantasy perspective, Ariel Atkins and Natasha Cloud still have to start. The Sun is 5-2 and ranked second in offensive rankings (110.3) and defensive rankings (92.9). Connecticut will try to recover from a loss to Dallas on Saturday night. Jonquel Jones is one of the best fantasy choices for the Sun. His 59th career second against Dallas. Jones is only the 18th player in league history to reach 60 double doubles. The following players continue to have to start: Alyssa Thomas, DeWanna Bonner, Brionna Jones and Jonquel Jones. One of the players who was able to elevate herself in the group was Natisha Hiedeman. The start of her first season was without Jasmine Thomas, who was expected to lose the rest of the season after tearing her ACL. Hiedeman scored the highest 36 fantasy points of the season in his new role. He is still available in 89% of the league. In a match between the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, the Mystics, who have won three of their last four games, will rely heavily on Atkins when they visit the Sun tonight.

Best bet: Srengenge -9.5

Without Delle Donne and Alysha Clark, the Mystics face additional challenges tonight on their way against the Sun. Against the spread, Connecticut is 4-2 in its last six games. The sun should cover it.
