Team Betting Notes
-- Atlanta (9-9) picked up an impressive 76-70 victory against Phoenix (14-6) to get back to .500. After a 1-4-1 ATS run from June 12-27, the Dream is a solid 3-1 ATS over the past four outings. The 'over' is 4-1 across the past five contests, while going 6-2 over the past eight, too.
-- It has been very difficult trying to figure out Chicago (7-12) this season. They rattled off three straight victories from June 24-29, including wins against the Dream and Mercury. However, they nosedived in a three-game span from July 1-5 before surprising Minnesota (11-8) as an 8 1/2-point underdog with a straight-up win on July 7. The Sky are 5-2 ATS across the past seven after the win, but they're just 2-5 ATS in their past seven on the road.
-- It was another ugly week for Connecticut (10-9), as they dropped a pair of road games after surprising Los Angeles (12-8) on July 3. The Sun are 3-8 ATS over the past 11 outings, and they still haven't covered in back-to-back games since June 1-3.
-- Dallas (10-8) is on a season-high three-game winning streak after a perfect 3-0 SU/ATS week. The Wings have covered four in a row on the road, too, and they're 6-2 ATS in their past eight away games.
-- Indiana (2-17) won a stunner in Minnesota as a 14-point underdog, the largest upset of the season, winning for the few moneyline (+800) bettors who bravely banked on the Fever. It was their only cover across the past six, too.
-- The Sparks have been stumbling a lot lately, dropping a season-high three in a row. They're also 1-6 ATS over the past seven outings, too. While they have been a bit undependable lately against the spread, total bettors known L.A. is solid. The 'under' is 13-7 in their 20 games this season.
-- New York (5-14) enters the new week on a three-game swoon after an awful week. They posted a season-low 62 points in their home outing July 3 against Seattle (15-5), and they're also 0-3 ATS in the past three outings, too, while going 3-10 ATS over the past 13. The Liberty haven't had consecutive covers since a three-game streak May 25-June 2.
-- As mentioned above, the Mercury had their four-game win streak snapped July 8 in the ATL. They're still 4-1 SU/ATS over the past five outings. Under bettors have found Phoenix to be favorable, too, as the under is 4-1 in the past five, and 10-4 over the past 14.
-- The Storm have tied a season-high win streak, going 5-0 SU/4-0-1 ATS across the past five. They're also averaging 96.0 PPG over the past two, and it's no surprise that the over has hit in back-to-back games for Seattle as a result.
-- Washington (12-7) has lost consecutive games just once this season, a three-game losing skid from June 1-7. They're a solid 6-2 SU and 5-2-1 ATS across the past eight outings, too.
