Team Betting Notes
-- Atlanta (8-8) clawed back to .500 by going 2-1 SU/ATS in the past week. The Dream have also pieced together a 3-0 SU/ATS mark at home over their past three outings.
-- Chicago (4-12) slapped the brakes on a three-game losing streak in a shocking way on Thursday, stunning Minnesota (13-2) by a 100-76 score as a 14-point underdog. The win for the Sky also ended an 0-3 ATS skid.
-- Connecticut (10-7) has rolled up four consecutive victories while going 4-0 ATS, winning by an average of 12.5 points per game during the span. The Sun improved to 11-2 ATS over the past 13 outings, and 13-4 ATS overall on the season. Total bettors are also fond of the Sun, as the 'over' has hit in three of the past four, and 9-2 over the past 11 outings.
-- Dallas (9-10) split a home-and-home with the Dream, winning by 10 at home on July 5 and losing in the ATL by 20 points on July 9. The 'over' cashed in each of the outings.
-- Indiana (7-9) lost their only appearance in the past week, as the pesky Dream dealth them a 21-point loss down south. The Fever have looked sick lately, winning just once over the past four outings while also going 1-3 ATS during the span. The 'under' has been a dependable play for Indiana, going 5-2 over the past seven contests.
--Los Angeles (12-5) lost back-to-back games in the past week, a rarity for the Sparks. While L.A. has been impressive at home, going 7-0 SU/4-3 ATS, the Sparks have stumbled to a 5-5 SU/ATS record away from home. The good news is they'll be home for their only game this week against the Sun. They beat Connecticut 87-79 while covering a 2 1/2-point number in New England on June 27.
-- The Lynx have covered three in a row or better just once this season from June 3-11. The 'over' has been rather consistent, however, going 5-1 for Minnesota across the past six outings.
-- Phoenix (10-6) has pieced together a season-best three-game winning streak, covering each of the outings, too. They'll look to keep it going against the Dream at home Wednesday before a home-and-home with the Lynx on Friday and Sunday. The Merc were dumped at home, 91-83, in Phoenix on June 30. The 'over' has connected in four of the past five for Brittney Griner and company.
-- Washington (10-8) will look to salvage their road trip in Indianapolis on Friday night. The Mystics opened their road trip 0-3 SU/ATS, and they're just 3-6 SU/ATS in nine games away from the nation's capital this season.
