Team Betting Notes
-- Atlanta (4-4) has now dropped three games in a row and they're 0-4 ATS over their past four outings. Total bettors have found the Dream to be a consistent play, too. While the 'over' connected in their most recent game, the 'under' is 5-1 over the past six and 6-2 in their eight contests overall.
-- Connecticut (3-5) has won back-to-back games, averaging 89.5 points per game, and they have covered in a season-high four in a row. In fact, while the Sun find themselves below .500 overall, they're an impressive 6-1 ATS over the past seven games.
-- Indiana (4-6) has been able to win back-to-back games just once this season. They haven't been terribly consistent, but they have been solid at home. The Fever is 4-1 SU/3-2 ATS at home and 0-5/1-4 ATS on the road. They will play two games in the upcoming week, one at home against the Dream and another on the road against the Sky.
-- Chicago (2-7) picked up a comeback win in overtime at San Antonio (0-9), keeping the Stars winless on the young season. The Sky have now covered in consecutive games for the first time this season after starting out 2-5 ATS over the first seven. The 'over' has been a good play for total bettors, going 4-1 over Chicago's past five outings.
-- For the Stars, they have posted a dismal 0-3 ATS mark over the past three outings after starting out 5-1 ATS in the first six. The total has done a complete flip-flop, too. After the 'under' was 4-2 in San Antonio's first six, the 'over' is 3-0 over their past three. As far as consistency is concerned, it's amazing that the Stars have allowed exactly 85 points in each of their past three outings.
-- Dallas (4-6) started out well, but the Wings have been clipped over the past five outings. Dallas is 1-4 SU/ATS over the past five games. Total bettors are a big fan of the Wings, as the 'over' is an impressive 7-2 over their past nine outings.
-- Los Angeles (5-3) hasn't fired out of the chute like last season, failing to win more than two straight so far this season. They also haven't covered in consecutive games since the first two games (May 13-19).
-- New York (6-3) stumbled out of the gate, going 2-3 SU/1-4 ATS over the first five outings. But the Liberty have pieced together a four-game win and cover streak since flipping the calendar to June. The 'over' is also 5-1 over their past six outings.
-- Phoenix (5-4) has been unable to win more than two in a row so far in a trying start to their season, and they're just 4-5 ATS. One thing has been very consistent lately for the Mercury, and that's the 'over'. The total has gone over in five in a row for the Merc heading into the new week. They have allowed at least 88 points in each of the past four while going for 87 or more points in four of the past five on offense.
-- Seattle (5-4) has hit the skids, losing back-to-back games for the first time this season. They're also just 1-3 ATS over the past four outings after covering three in a row from May 21-28. The 'over' has hit in each of the past six for Seattle.
