Team Betting Notes
-- It was another high-scoring week in the WNBA, with the 'over' cashing in eight of 13 games. So far through 38 games, the over is 22-15-1 (59.5%).
-- Oddly enough, Minnesota (8-1) saw the under cash in each of its two games this past week after the over hit in six of their first seven outings. However, after starting out 1-3 ATS, the Lynx have posted a 4-1 ATS mark over its past five games.
-- Tulsa (1-5) 'shocked' visiting Phoenix (5-2) Friday for its first win of the season. Despite their awful overall record, the Shock have been competitive. Tulsa is an impressive 5-1 ATS so far through six games.
-- The Mercury was able to bounce back Saturday on road against San Antonio (4-5). Brittney Griner and company has now watched the over cash in four consecutive games.
-- Washington (4-4) lost back-to-back games for the first time this season Sunday in New York (3-5). It was a rare over for the Mystics, who entered Sunday's game with unders in five of the past six.
-- The Liberty halted a three-game losing streak which saw them go 0-3 ATS during the span. New York looks for back-to-back wins for the first time this season in Tuesday's afternoon game at Tulsa.
-- After starting the season both 4-0 SU and ATS, Chicago (5-3) has hit the skids a bit. Elena Delle Donne and company have managed just one straight-up win over the past four, and they're 1-3 ATS during the span.
