Team Betting Notes

--  Atlanta  (2-7 SU, 3-6 ATS) posted an outright win as a one-point underdog, but they lost their past two outings by 10 or more points. While they're not winning games, they're at least a respectable 3-2 ATS over the past five outings. The 'over' has also connected in each of the past three, mainly thanks to a lack of defense. The Dream have allowed 84.3 PPG over the past three outings.

Chicago  (6-3 SU, 6-3 ATS) slipped up as a 4 1/2-point favorite at home against  Indiana  (5-6 SU, 6-5 ATS) in their mid-week game, but they rebounded to hand  Connecticut  (9-2 SU, 6-5 ATS) just their second setback of the season. The Sky have rebounded after a slow start to go 5-1 SU/ATS across the past six.

-- The Sun saw their seven-game winning streak snapped by the Sky. While they've been winning, they're just 1-3 ATS across the past four, and 2-4 ATS in the past six outings. The 'over' has connected in three of the past four contests, too.

Atlanta  (2-6 SU, 4-4 ATS) was treated rudely in  Las Vegas  (5-4 SU, 4-5 ATS) by former teammate Liz Cambage on Saturday, falling 86-68 as 14 1/2-point underdogs, snapping a mini two-game win and cover streak. The over result also snapped a seven-game under run.

-- The Aces have hit the 'over' in consecutive games for the first time this season, as they're starting to jell on offense a little. Las Vegas is up to second in the WNBA in offense, registering 83.2 PPG, and they're No. 1 in 3-point shooting percentage at 38.2. They're also No. 1 in field-goal percentage defense, allowing opponents to hit just 38.6 percent form the field.

Los Angeles  (4-6 SU, 3-6-1 ATS) fired out to a nice start, but they have since dropped four in a row and failed to cover in each of the outings as favorites. In fact, the Sparks are 0-4-1 ATS as a favorite this season.

-- Minnesota  (5-5 SU, 5-4-1 ATS) slapped the brakes on a four-game losing streak, pushing past  New York  (3-7 SU, 4-5-1 ATS) by a 92-83 score on Saturday as an 8 1/2-point favorite. The Lynx have covered three in a row.

-- The Liberty entered the week with three wins and cover across their past four outings, but they dropped a pair of games this week, including a 91-83 decision against the Sky as two-point favorites. The Liberty are 0-2 SU/ATS as a favorite this season.

-- Phoenix  (3-5 SU, 3-4-1 ATS) snapped a three-game losing streak and non-cover streak in a 10-point win over L.A. on Sunday. The over result in that game also put the end to a three-game under skid.

-- Seattle  (7-4 SU, 6-5 ATS) started out rather slowly, alternating wins and losses across their first six. However, after a 3-3 SU/ATS start, the defending WNBA champs are 4-1 SU/3-2 ATS across the past five outings. The 'under' has also connected in four in a row heading into the new week. 

-- Washington  (7-3 SU, 6-4 ATS) is on a roll, winning and cover in three straight games during their current road trip. The last stop is in Chicago on Wednesday.
