Storm vs. Aces Prediction & Pick

All NBA win probability predictions and picks are according to FiveThirtyEight.

Win prediction: Las Vegas Aces (69% probability)

FiveThirtyEight projects the Aces to open the series with a victory at home. Las Vegas had tremendous success against the Storm this season, winning three of the four meetings between the two teams. Each of the Aces’ three victories was won by at least eight points.

One of the reasons why the Storm succeeded in Round 1 was because they shot 51.2% from three-point range. They likely won’t have the same success against the Aces, who held the Mercury to 24.4% shooting from behind the arc. Las Vegas also has the rebounding advantage, especially after Kiah Stokes and A’ja Wilson both averaged 8.0 rebounds in the first round.

In a likely high-scoring affair, I’m expecting the Aces to emerge as the victors.

Final Score Prediction: Aces: 93, Storm: 86

  • Seattle is 7-10-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last 18 road games.
  • Las Vegas is 7-4 ATS in its last 11 home games against West opponents.
  • The total has hit the over in 13 of Seattle’s last 18 road games.
  • The total has hit the over in 12 of Las Vegas’ last 20 home games.
