Team Betting Notes
Atlanta (5-21 SU, 11-15 ATS) has now dropped 11 consecutive games dating back to their last win on July 12. Oddly enough, they had three wins in four tries from July 5-12, but are now easily the worst team in the WNBA. They’re still a respectable 3-3 ATS across the past six, including 3-1 ATS in the previous four road contests.
Chicago (15-11 SU, 17-8-1 ATS) has registered eight victories across the past 11 outings, and they’re 7-1 ATS across the past eight contests. In addition, the Sky are favorites of total bettors at the window, as the ‘over’ has connected in seven straight while going 9-1-1 across the past 11 outings.
Connecticut (19-8 SU, 11-16 ATS) carries a three-game winning streak into the new week, although they continue to struggle against the number. The Sun are just 1-4 ATS across the past five games, while going 2-7 ATS over the past nine. The Sun have also had issues on the road, going 2-9 ATS in the past 11 away from home.
Dallas (9-18 SU, 14-13 ATS) have performed a lot better both straight-up and against the spread lately, seemingly spurred on by that brawl in Phoenix on Aug. 10. The Wings have come alive with three wins in the past four, and they’re 3-1 ATS during the span. The ‘over’ is also 3-1 after a 5-0-2 ‘under’ run.
Indiana (9-17 SU, 11-14-1 ATS) have been fairly competitive in most games lately, going 3-2 SU/1-3-1 ATS over the past five. However, they were crushed by 39 points in D.C. by the Mystics in their most recent outing, and the ‘over’ has hit in four in a row.
Las Vegas (18-9 SU, 11-16 ATS) has their swagger back lately, especially on offense, dropping in 89 or more points in each of the past three. They also have C A’ja Wilson back from injury, and that’s bad for everyone else. The ‘over’ is a perfect 4-0 in the past four for the Aces, too.
Los Angeles (15-10 SU, 12-12-1 ATS) have dropped two in a row heading into the new week, both losses on the road in Chicago and Dallas. They have also failed to cover in each of the past three after a 4-0 ATS run. The ‘over’ has hit in five in a row for the Sparks, and they have 76 or more points in eight consecutive contests.
Minnesota (13-14 SU, 14-12-1 ATS) limp in on a two-game losing streak, and they have dropped three of the past four while going 1-3 ATS during the span. The only consistently for the Lynx, as far as bettors are concerned, is their 4-0 ‘over’ run. The over has also hit in six of the past seven, and five in a row away from home.
New York (8-18 SU, 9-16-1 ATS) continues to limp along, as their losing skid has reached eight straight games. They have also failed to cover in seven straight, so continue to fade the Liberty.
Phoenix (13-13 SU, 14-11-1 ATS) isn’t used to this role, as they’re just hanging on for dear life in the playoff picture. They have come alive with two straight wins while covering three in a row. Defense can be credited for the uptick, and the ‘under’ is a perfect 3-0 in the past three as a result.
Seattle (15-13 SU, 15-12-1 ATS) hasn’t performed terribly well straight up in recent weeks, going just 3-5 SU over the past eight. However, they have covered in four of the past five heading into the new week.
Washington (20-7 SU, 16-10-1 ATS) is the only team in the WNBA in the 20-win club, leading Connecticut by one game. The Mystics have won five in a row and they have covered four straight. Offense is no problem in D.C., and the ‘over’ is 7-1 across the past eight, and 12-3 over the previous 15.
