Team Betting Notes
-- Atlanta (5-5) started out hot, going 4-1 SU over the first five outings. They're fallen on hard times lately, however, going 1-4 SU over their past five games while failing to cover in five of the past six contests. They'll return home to face Chicago (2-9) on the road Friday.
-- The Dream and Sky have split two games already this season, each winning and covering on each's other floor. While the Sky have been atrocious overall, they're a respectable 3-1 ATS over their past four games.
-- Don't look now, but Connecticut (5-5) is the hottest team in the WNBA. They have ripped off four consecutive victories, including an unlikely road win at Minnesota (9-1) on Saturday as a 9 1/2-point underdog (ML +425). The Sun has been burning bright, too, covering in six in a row and eight of the past nine.
-- The loss by the Lynx was particularly shocking since it was their first of the season after a 9-0 start. The non-cover also snapped a 3-0 ATS run.
-- Dallas (5-8) slapped the brakes on a three-game losing streak with a win at Washington (7-4) as an eight-point 'dog. One thing that has been consistent for the Wings is the 'over', hitting in nine of the past 12 outings.
-- Indiana (6-6) won and covered each of their games last week to get back to .500 overall. They have been a tough out at home, going 5-1 SU/3-3 ATS.
-- Los Angeles (8-3) will travel to meet the Fever on Saturday. After a slow start the Sparks are hitting on all cylinders, heading to Indiana on a four-game winning streak. However, they're still just 2-3 ATS in five road outings this season.
-- New York (7-4) got back on track with a 102-93 win at Dallas on Friday, and they're now an impressive 5-1 ATS over the past six outings. Total bettors have been a huge fan of the Liberty, too, as the 'over' has connected in three in a row and seven of the past eight. The 'over' is also 3-0 in New York's past three road affairs.
-- Phoenix (6-5) took it on the chin in L.A. on Sunday, falling 90-59 in easily their worst loss of the season. The Mercury have been rather erratic this season, with their longest win streak at just two games. The Merc have also failed to cover in three in a row.
-- Seattle (6-5) posted a 75-57 victory at home against San Antonio (0-11), as the Stars continue their search for the eraser for the zero in their win column. The Stars kicked off the season 5-1 ATS over their first six, but they're struggling there, too. San Antonio is just 1-4 ATS over the past five outings.
