League Betting Notes (from Monday, July 28 through Sunday, Aug. 3)

-- Favorites went 12-5 straight up
-- Underdogs went 10-7 against the spread (ATS)
-- Home teams posted a 11-6 SU record
-- Home teams posted a 13-4 ATS record
-- The 'under' went 11-6

Team Betting Notes

-- Phoenix (26-4) exacted a little revenge on Minnesota (24-7), winning 82-80 in the Valley of the Sun Saturday night, snapping the 11-game winning streak of the Lynx. The Mercury are now 3-1 SU/ATS vs the Lynx this season, and they atoned for a 75-67 setback in Minnesota July 31.

-- Atlanta (17-14) has fallen on hard times lately, losing five in a row. And after a 6-0 ATS run from June 3-20, the Dream have been mediocre against the spread, going 8-10-1 ATS over the past 19.

-- Tulsa (12-20) is a difficult team to figure. Just when you're ready to write them off, they win back-to-back games. Then, they lost to the lowly Storm Sunday. In fact, they're 4-3 SU/ATS over the past seven. The 'under' has been the play for the Shock lately, going 6-2 over the past eight.

-- New York (13-17) has alternated SU/ATS (4-4) wins and losses over the past eight games. They'll take on the Mercury at home Tuesday. The Liberty fell in the Valley of the Sun back on July 26 by a 78-63 score, failing to cover while the 'under' came in.

-- Seattle (12-20) is showing some signs of life, winning three straight games for the first time this season after taking down the Shock Sunday night. After a seven-game non-cover streak, the Storm is also 3-0 ATS during the winning streak.

-- San Antonio (14-18) ended their slide Sunday, putting an end to a four-game skid. However, they have still won just three of the past 12 straight up. They're also just 3-9 ATS during the poor stretch.

-- Los Angeles (14-17) awoke to beat the Dream 80-77 Friday, winning for the fourth time in six games, but they explicably tumbled Sunday in San Antonio as a road favorite. In addition, the Sparks are a dismal 0-6 ATS in the past six, and 1-9 ATS in the past 10.

-- Indiana (14-17) saw their 5-0 ATS streak end Aug. 8 against Washington (15-16), although they bounced back with a road win in New York as a pick 'em.

-- On the flip side, the Mystics have been decent against the number, even after their overtime setback at Connecticut Sunday, going 7-4-1 ATS over the past 12.
