Team Betting Notes
-- Minnesota (20-6) has turned up the intensity, as they try to keep Phoenix (21-3) within hailing distance. The Lynx won all three games in the past week, and went 2-1 ATS during the span. They've won seven games in a row, and they're 6-1 ATS during the span. Next up is a date with Phoenix Thursday night at home.
-- Speaking of the Mercury, they have torn off 15 straight victories, and they have covered 10 straight games. They'll try not to look ahead to Thursday's giant tilt against the Lynx, trying to take care of business first against Los Angeles (11-14) Tuesday night in the Valley of the Sun.
-- Washington (13-13) has suddenly caught fire, winning four straight games, and they're 3-0-1 ATS during the impressive stretch.
-- Tulsa (9-17) picked up a rare win by taking care of equally disappointing Chicago (10-15). The Shock have stumbled in the win column overall, but they are 3-0-1 ATS in the past four.
-- The Sky had their meager two-game winning streak snapped in Tulsa, and they are now just 5-14 SU over the past 19 games with a 6-13 ATS mark during the stretch. That's disappointing considering they started out 5-1 SU/ATS.
-- San Antonio (12-14) have struggled lately, particularly against the numbe. The Stars are just 1-5 SU and 0-6 ATS over the past six games. They'll take on the Sky Tuesday, so something's gotta give.
