Here’s what to look for today:

Line: Aces (-6)
Money line: Sun (+210), Aces (-260)
Total: 169 points
BPI Win%: Aces (55.6%)

Best Bet: Over 169. These two teams have played three times this season, and every one has been high scoring. The’ve averaged 177.0 combined points in those matchups, and they’ve scored at least 170 points in all three games. The Sun typically prefer playing more of a slow down game that takes advantage of their huge frontcourt, but the Aces are consistently able to push the pace and the Sun tend to run with them when they play. Looking for another high scoring matchup to tip-off what should be a very entertaining series. — André Snellings

Best bet: Under 169. I see this the opposite way. While the Aces have a talented offense that ranked first in offensive rating and pace during the regular season, and Connecticut’s offense ranked second in offensive rating, both team’s also possess strong defense and that will make it difficult to reach this high point total in Game 1. As both teams are very capable defensively, this should be a lower scoring game than the three previous matchups in the regular season. — Eric Moody
