Can the Wings even up the series?
Tonight, is game two of the WNBA Semifinals between the Las Vegas Aces (1-0, 1-0 Home) and the Dallas Wings (0-1, 0-1 Away). Best of five games, the Aces will have home court advantage, and the Dallas Wings will look to even up the series. With Las Vegas favored by ten points in game one, the Aces defeated the Wings 97-83. With 34 points, four blocks, and eight rebounds, A'ja Wilson is the "only player in WNBA playoff history with back-to-back games with 30 + points, 5+ rebounds, and 3 + blocks." The Aces had four players finish with points in double figures, including Jackie Young with a double-double.
Both the Dallas Wings and the Las Vegas Aces have multiple star players that averaged points in double figures throughout the season. Offensively, Dallas was able to keep up with the Aces 43.5 percent three point shooting. Las Vegas dominated the Wings on the rebounds, 26-19, and Dallas was outscored in the paint, 46-40. For the Wings, they had six players with points in double digits. Becky Hammon's Aces finished the night shooting 100 percent from the free-throw line.
In this article, I will break down the WNBA betting odds, statistics, trends, odds, player prop bets, and predictions. The matchup will begin at 10 p.m. ET, at Michelob ULTRA Arena, located in Las Vegas, Nevada. If you're betting on the WNBA and interested in watching, the game will air on ESPN. For the best betting odds, stats and analysis, here is information to know.
WNBA Odds Game 2: Las Vegas Aces vs. Dallas Wings
Aces vs. Wings over 175.5
Both the Las Vegas Aces and the Dallas Wings remained two of the top three teams in terms of offensive rating this season. Going into the postseason, Aces remain No. 1, and the Wings at No. 3. They remain the top rebounding teams in the postseason. Contrary to their shooting woes this year, Dallas is shooting 39 percent from three in playoff games. Through the first round, and in the last matchup, Dallas and Las Vegas average over 90 points a game, and average 182 points combined in their last three games.
Las Vegas and Dallas are two teams have a least four players that averaged points in double figures. In Vegas, Jackie Young, A'ja Wilson, Kelsey Plum, and Chelsea Gray are the core. For Dallas, Natasha Howard, Satou Sabally, Teaira McCowan, and Arike Ogunbowale are the foundation. There is too much talent on both sides, I can't fade the over here.
Why the over will hit tonight
For totals, the Wings and Aces finished 24-16-0 during the season, and three of their five matchups, including the playoffs, totaled the over in points. Since the end of July, the Aces average 101.6 points in three matchups against Dallas. The Wings, who averaged nearly 88 points a game this year, are putting up 86 points a game against the Aces since July 30.
While Las Vegas runs a smaller three guard lineup, the Wings have the size to be physical in the paint. Both the Aces and Wings were top teams in pace, and remain among the top in the playoffs. With a higher pace, comes faster game play, and more scoring. Given their high rebounding percentage, Dallas ranks first in second chance scoring, and points in the paint. If the Wings can continue their improbably shooting from long range, combined with their inside play, I fully expect the over to hit tonight.
Arike Ogunbowale under 20.5 points

Arike Ogunbowale is one of the most talented guards in the WNBA. Averaging over 21 points a game during the regular season, Ogunbowale has been a key piece of this Wings team, including the playoffs. In four regular season matchups against the Aces, No. 24s numbers dipped drastically. She averaged 14.8 points, on 33 percent from the field, and 27.6 percent from the three. In game one of the semifinals against Las Vegas, Ogunbowale was held to 12 points on 28.6 percent field goal shooting.
If you're betting tonight, this prop hit once in four games against the Aces. Although Ogunbowale has been known for her drives in the paint, Vegas guards will have a heavy defense presence on her. We've seen her pull from the three over Alysha Clarke, however I am going to fade over 20.5 points against the best defensive team in the playoffs.
The shot volume has been there for Ogunbowale, along with her quickness. I see her scoring tonight, but with the amount of talent on this team, I believe it will be more balanced amongst the starters and bench players. Through three playoff games, Dallas leads in bench points. Guard Odyssey Sims and Center Kalani Brown combined for 20 points off the Wings bench.
