Team Betting Notes
-- Atlanta (12-9) is playing its best basketball of the season, rattling off four consecutive victories and covers for bettors. The offense has come alive during the impressive stretch, averaging 90.0 points per game (PPG) during the impressive span. The 'over' is also an impressive 6-2 across the past eight outings.
-- Chicago (7-15) continues to tumble down the standings, as they have lost and failed to cover in three in a row, while losing six of their past seven games straight-up. In addition, the 'under' is 4-1 in the past five games.
-- It was a bounce-back week for Connecticut (12-10), as the picked up impressive wins at home against Phoenix (15-8) and on the road against Minnesota (12-10). The cover as 3 1/2-point underdogs against the Lynx snapped an 0-4 ATS skid.
-- Dallas (12-9) saw their season-best five-game winning streak snapped in Seattle (16-6), but there's no shame losing to the team with the league's best record. The Wings also saw their impressive 5-0 ATS streak snapped. Total bettors continue to be big fans of the Storm, as the 'over' is 9-2-1 across the past 12 contets.
-- The lost season continues for Indiana (2-20), as they endured their 20th straight-up loss of the season at home against the Mercury on Sunday. Not only have the Fever dropped four in a row, they are 0-4 ATS during the span, too. They're just 1-8 ATS across the past nine, too.
-- Las Vegas (10-13) saw their franchise-best four-game winning streak snapped in a big way by Los Angeles (14-9), falling 99-78 at home. The Aces started out a bit slow this season, but they are a respectable 9-6 SU across the past 15 games while going 10-7 ATS across the past 17.
-- The Sparks have been struggling with consistency, failing to win back-to-back games since June 24-26. That's very unlike L.A. In fact, they're just 3-6 SU across the past nine while going 3-7 ATS in the past 10.
-- The Lynx have been uncharacteristically weak, dropping consecutive games at home to the Aces and Sun. Their margin of loss is 13.5 PPG, so they are far from elite right now and just barely scraping by at two games above .500. One thing that has been consistent is the 'under', going 4-0 in the past four, and 6-1 across the past seven.
-- The Mercury slapped the brakes on a three-game losing skid, getting well in Indiana as 9 1/2-point favorites over the weekend. The 'over' has hit in each of their past three outings, and they have covered in two straight, and six of the past eight.
-- The Storm have picked up victories in six of their past seven, going 5-1-1 ATS. Seattle has posted the best record in the WNBA thanks to an impressive offense. They have scored 87.1 PPG to rank second in the league in scoring, while hitting 46.7 percent of their field-goal attempts to rank first in the league.
(13-9) continues to sit atop the Eastern Conference, and they have rattled off wins in six of their past seven. They're also 5-1-1 ATS during the impressive span.
