Team Betting Notes
-- It was a memorable week for Las Vegas (1-5), as they were able to pick up the first regular season victory in franchise history. The Aces scored an 85-73 victory over Washington (5-3) on June 1 in Nevada. The loss snapped a 4-0 ATS run for the Mystics, so it was rather surprising. The 'under' has cashed in three of the past four for Washington, too.
-- Connecticut (5-0) continues its early-season assault on the rest of the WNBA, covering four of their five outings so far. That includes a perfect 2-0 ATS through two road contests. The four-game road odyssey continues with stops in Atlanta (2-3) and New York (2-2) this week.
-- The Dream has alternated losses and wins through their five outings, doing the same against the spread, too. If the trend continues, a win and cover against the visiting Sun on Tuesday will be coming. One thing that isn't erratic about Atlanta is their work against the total, as the 'under' has hit in four in a row.
-- After two setbacks to open the new season the Liberty has won each of their past two. They have also covered three in a row, while the 'over' is 3-1 on the young campaign.
-- Chicago (3-3) slapped the brakes on a three-game losing streak, edging the Aces 95-90 on Sunday. The Sky has posted 80 or more points in four of six outings, while allowing at least 76 points in the past five. The 'over' has hit in three in a row for Chicago.
-- Indiana (0-6) is still searching for its first victory of the season. Defense has been the issue for the Fever, as they have allowed 82 or more points in all six contests. The 'over' has connected in four of their past five outings.
-- Like Atlanta above, Dallas (3-3) has alternated losses and wins through their six battles to date. Defense has been an issue for the Wings, as they have yielded at least 76 points in all but one of their four outings, including 92.0 PPG allowed over the past two games. The 'over' has hit in four of their contests. Dallas is on an impressive 4-1 ATS run over the past five heading into the new week.
-- Minnesota (2-5) is experiencing some uncharacteristic struggles, as they're in the midst of a four-game losing streak. They had been favorites in their first six outings, but they were an underdog for their most recent setback. Fade Minnesota if you want to cash big, as the Lynx are 0-7 ATS so far this season. The 'under' is also an impressive 5-2.
-- Los Angeles (4-1) is off to a solid start, with only a setback to the Sun back on May 24. They're also 4-1 ATS so far.
-- Seattle (5-2) had its five-game winning streak snapped in Big D, losing 94-90 against the Wings. The Storm have alternated non-covers and covers in each of their seven games. The 'over' has hit in six of their seven games so far this season.
