Team Betting Notes
-- Atlanta (5-3) split a pair in a home-and-home with Indiana (1-10), as the Dream became the first victory of the Fever. In fact, it wasn't even close, as Indiana hammered Atlanta by a 96-64 count on Saturday, taking out a season's worth of a aggression in one night. Atlanta is now a disappointing 1-3-1 ATS over the past five outings.
-- The Fever might have just one victory straight-up, but they've been a friend to bettors at the window. Indiana has posted an impressive 4-1 ATS mark over the past five, and they're a perfect 4-0 ATS in four road outings in 2018.
-- Chicago (3-7) is in the midst of a four-game skid, and they've won just once in the past eight outings after opening the season 2-0 SU/ATS. The Sky have also failed to cover in four in a row, and they're 0-5-1 ATS across the past six contests.
-- It was an outstanding start to the season for Connecticut (7-4), as they fired out of the chute 5-0 SU, and 7-1 SU through the first eight. Lately it's been a different story, as the Sun are 0-3 SU/ATS. They will look to snap that ugly skid as the road trip continues Friday night in Atlanta. Connecticut has failed to cover in five straight road contests.
-- Phoenix (10-3) limped out of the box with three losses in their first five contests, very uncharacteristic by their standards. The Mercury have been doing what's expected lately, however, posting eight straight outings since flipping the calendar from May to June. They're also an impressive 7-1 ATS during the eight-game winning streak.
-- Minnesota (4-6) is another team used to winning, but they have yet to rattled off an impressive winning streak. Perhaps an 85-71 victory against New York (3-6) will spur them on. After opening the season 0-7 ATS, the Lynx have posted a 2-1 ATS mark across the past three. They'll try and cool off the Merc on Friday night in the desert.
-- The Liberty opened the season with covers in three of their first four, but they're 0-3 ATS over the past three, and 1-4 ATS across the past five. They're also just 1-2 ATS in three road contests, which is bad news considering 10 of their next 14 will be away from Gotham.
-- Las Vegas (3 -9) won their first two road games in franchise history last Tuesday and Wednesday, but it was back to losing ways in the past two. They're just 1-3 SU/2-2 ATS in four home games, and they're where they're be in four of the next five.
-- Seattle (8-3) has been impressive, as they have yet to post non-covers in back-to-back games this season. Overall they're 6-5 ATS, and 3-1 ATS over the past four. The Storm have been particularly attractive to bettors on the road, going 3-1 SU/ATS in four contests.
-- Los Angeles (8-2) continues to quietly roll along, posting four straight wins while going 3-0-1 ATS. Total bettors love the Sparks, too, as the 'under' is an impressive 6-1 across the past seven.
