This is what to look for today:

Seattle Storm at Las Vegas Aces
4:00 p.m. Michelob Ultra Arena, Las Vegas

Line: Aces (-5.5)
money line: Storm (+205), Aces (-250)
Total: 170.5 points
BPI Earning %: Aces (64.7%)

Discarded: Gabby Williams (concussion)

Best bet: over 170.5. In the last six games between these two teams since 2021, the Aces have won five. There’s a good chance this game will be high-scoring with A’ja Wilson and Breanna Stewart leading their respective teams. For the Aces, Wilson averaged 19.5 PPG, 9.4 RPG and 1.9 BPG. As for Stewart, she won her first career scoring title by averaging 21.8 points per game. Additionally, she averaged 7.6 RPG, 3.0 APG, and 1.6 SPG. In the Aces’ last 18 home games, the total has topped 11 times. For the last five Storm games, the totals have been surpassed. — eric grumpy

Best bet: over 170.5. These two teams have so much star power and offensive options that all you can do is try to slow them down and that very rarely works. Also, in the last seven matchups between these two, they have finished in five of those games. Both teams have also found their groove offensively in these playoffs, averaging the first and third most PPG this postseason. Additionally, the Aces and Storm rank first and second respectively in 3-pointers made during these playoffs and both teams only played two games in the first round. Lastly, they’re the only two teams this postseason shooting 50% or more from 3-point range, so I think it’s going to be a very high-scoring thing. –Jenni LaCroix

Best bet: Aces -5.5. These two teams have played four times this season and the Aces have won three of the four games. None of the four games were decided by fewer than eight points, and the Aces’ three wins were by an average of 9.3 PPG. These teams played twice after Tina Charles moved into the Storm’s starting lineup, and the Aces won both games, one at home and one in Seattle, by a combined 17 points. — andre snellings

Connecticut sun in Chicago sky
8:00 p.m., Wintrust Arena, Chicago

Line: Sky (-4)
money line: Sun (+152), Sky (-180)
Total: 165.5 points
BPI Earning %: Sky (50.8%)

Questionable: Ruthy Hebard (illness)

Best bet: over 165.5. It’s a rematch of last season’s semi-finals, when Sky defeated Sun in four games. Now Chicago is the favorite, and Connecticut is determined to turn the tables. There is a lot of familiarity between these two teams. With the Sun playing the Sky eight times in the last 11 months, and Chicago going 7-1 in those games, the Sun will be motivated for this game. All season long, Connecticut’s defense has been strong, but not against the Sky. This season, the Sun have allowed 109.0 points per 100 possessions against Chicago. There is a good chance that this game will be high scoring. In 13 of Sky’s 19 home games, the total has been exceeded. — Grumpy

Best Bet: Sky -4. The Sky have gone 4-0 against the Sun in the regular season and although games have been close, the Sky have experience on their side. Chicago has also covered against the Sun in five of its last six games. To add to that, the Sky have won three of their last four games by 15 or more points. — LaCroix
