Team Betting Notes
-- Minnesota (22-6) continues to home right along, heading into the new week with a nine-game winning streak. They are also 8-1 ATS during the impressive stretch. They'll put their winning streak on the line Tuesday at Indiana (13-15).
-- The Fever head into that showdown with the Lynx going 2-2 SU, but they have covered four in a row. Indiana lost 83-77 in Minnesota June 22 in the first meeting, but they were able to cover.
-- Connecticut (11-18) put the skids on a four-game losing streak (0-3-1 ATS) with a win and cover at San Antonio (13-16), who has also been struggling mightily.
-- The Stars have now lost four of the past five, and seven of the past nine overall. Bettors have been a big fan of the Stars, or at least a fan of betting against them, as San Antonio is 1-8 ATS over the past nine after a six-game cover streak from June 26-July 9.
-- Chicago (12-16) has its star Elena Della Donne back from injury, and they are ascending once again. Chicago has won back-to-back games, and four of the past six overall after a six-game slide from July 2-17. Chicago has also covered four of the past six.
-- Atlanta (17-10) remains in first place by a healthy margin in the Eastern Conference, but they have lost five of the past seven overall. They're also just 2-5-1 ATS over the past eight games.
-- Phoenix (23-4) continues to be the gold standard in the WNBA, but they haven't been as much of a sure thing against the spread lately. After going 11-0 ATS from July 2-29, they have failed to cover back-to-back games for the first time since June 27-29.
