Team Betting Notes
-- Indiana (3-3) is on a roll. After starting the season 0-3 SU/1-2 ATS, the Fever have rattled off three straight wins and cover. The Fever entered Saturday with the 'over' cashing in four of their first five, but the 'under' hit against New York (2-4).
-- The Liberty opened with a road win and cover May 16, but they are 1-4 SU and 1-3-1 ATS since. One thing that has been consistent with the Liberty is the fact the 'under' has cashed in five of their six outings so far.
-- Phoenix (3-1) pounded Tulsa (0-5) by a 100-78 score. It was the first 'over' for Phoenix after three straight unders to open the season. Phoenix is now 3-1 SU and ATS. They meet Seattle (2-5) Tuesday at home. The Mercury weathered the Storm 81-64 in the season opener back on May 17 in Phoenix, covering with an under.
-- The Shock can't buy a win. In fact, they're not only the lone winless team in the WNBA, but every other squad has at least two victories. Tulsa has been competitve, though, covering four of their five games thusfar.
-- Chicago (5-1) suffered its first loss of the season Monday against Minnesota (7-0), but rebounded with a win over Connecticut (2-5), 101-82, on Friday. The 'over' is 2-1 in the past three for the Sky.
-- Minnesota remains unbeaten and they are starting to cover, too. After opening the season 1-3 ATS, they have covered three in a row. And the 'over' is now 6-1 in seven games for the Lynx.
-- Despite a win Sunday, the Sun remains mired in last place in the Eastern Conference. The over has come through in three straight games for Connecticut.
-- Washington (3-2) outlasted Los Angeles (2-2) in what was the game of the season so far, winning 92-84 in triple-overtime. It was the first over in four games for the Sparks.
-- The Sparks have managed a total of just four games to date, but they have a three-game week on tap, including the continuation of their road trip Tuesday in Atlanta, and Friday in Chicago before returning home to face Minnesota.
