Team Betting Notes

--  Atlanta  (5-14 SU, 8-11 ATS) is back to getting pounded again after putting up a fight for a two-week span. The Dream went 3-3 SU in a six-game stretch from July 5-17, losing one game in overtime, one game by one point and another game by two points. They finally looked to be jelling after a tough start and adjustment period without F Angel McCoughtry (knee). However, they lost 98-69 at Connecticut  (12-6 SU, 9-9 ATS) and 93-65 in  Washington  (11-6 SU, 9-8 ATS). 

-- As far as the Sun is concerned, they're clinging to first place by a half-game over the Mystics heading into the new week. After a five-game skid, the Sun have rattled off three victories and covers to get back on track. The 'under' is 5-2 across their past seven games.

-- The Mystics have managed 85.9 points per game (PPG), a 45.0 field-goal percentage and 85.9 free-throw percentage, all of which lead the WNBA. Like the Sun, the Mystics have registered a pair of wins to get back on track after a three-game skid from July 7-13. The over is 4-1 across the past five outings, too.

-- Chicago  (11-8 SU, 11-7-1 ATS) has worked their way to near the top of the standings in the Eastern Conference with four straight wins and a 3-1 ATS mark during the span.

-- Dallas  (5-14 SU, 10-9 ATS) continues to struggle on the offensive end, registering just 69.8 PPG to rank dead-last in the WNBA, and they're 11th in field-goal percentage and 3-point percentage. The Wings have dropped five in a row since their surprising 12-point win over  Los Angeles  (10-8 SU, 8-9-1 ATS) back on July 9. The Wings are 0-9 SU and 4-5 ATS on the road this season, too.

-- Speaking of the Sparks, they had their three-game win streak snapped at New York  (8-10 SU, 8-9-1 ATS). Despite the loss to the Liberty, the Sparks are 6-2 SU and 5-3 ATS across the past eight to rebound after a slow start.

-- The Liberty have won and covered just once in the past four outings, the win over the Sparks. After losing to L.A. at home back on June 4, the Liberty have won and covered each of the past two outings against the Sparks with the 'over' hitting in each.

-- Indiana  (6-14 SU, 10-10 ATS) have dropped five in a row since beating Dallas on July 5, and they're 1-3 ATS across the past four. The Fever have lost eight in a row at home since also beating the Wings on June 7, and they're 2-6 ATS during the awful span in Indy.

Las Vegas  (12-6 SU, 6-12 ATS) rebounded on Sunday after a three-point loss in  Seattle  (12-8 SU, 11-8-1 ATS) on Friday. The Aces are now and impressive 10-3 SU across the past 13 after a slow start, but they're still having trouble against the number, going 3-9 ATS over the past 12. Vegas hasn't covered in back-to-back outings all season. Total bettors are liking the Aces, too, as the under is 4-1 over the past five.

-- Lastly, the Storm have won and covered four in a row, as they're finally looking like a championship caliber team after being struck in neutral for most of the first half.
