Team Betting Notes
Atlanta (7-24 SU, 14-17 ATS)
continues to limp to the finish line, dropping each of their two contests in the previous week while failing to cover in each. The over has connected in four of the past five outings heading into the final week.
Chicago (19-13 SU, 20-11-1 ATS)
had a rough week, going 1-2 SU/ATS, although their 105-78 whitewashing of the Mercury is a feel-good moment heading into the new week. The over cashed for the fourth straight game in that one, and the over is 12-1 across the past 13 outings, too.
Connecticut (22-9 SU, 13-17-1 ATS)
managed a pair of victories to keep pace with the Mystics in the East Division, sitting just one game back. The Sun have won six of the past seven overall, and they're 3-1-1 ATS across the past five outings.
Dallas (10-21 SU, 16-15 ATS)
split a pair of battles in the past week, while covering each. They're a respectable 5-3 ATS across the past eight outings. The 'over' has connected in four in a row, while going 7-1 across the past eight outings, too.
Indiana (11-21 SU, 15-16-1 ATS)
dropped each of their past two outings, but they continue to play hard down the stretch. The Fever have ratllted off a season-best four covers in a row, while the 'under' is 3-1 during the impressive span. The over is also 3-1-1 in their past five outings at home.
After splitting a pair of games in the past week, Las Vegas (20-12 SU, 12-20 ATS)
was able to join the Mystics and Sun in the 20-win club. The Aces had a rare under result at Indian on Aug. 27, but the over is 8-1 across the past nine contests for the first-place Aces.
Los Angeles (19-12 SU, 15-15-1 ATS)
have been hard to figure lately. They covered four in a row from July 23-Aug. 8, went 0-3 ATS from Aug. 11-16, covered three in a row from Aug. 20-25, and now they're in an 0-3 ATS skid again heading into the new week.
Minnesota (17-15 SU, 17-14-1 ATS)
have won a season-high four games in a row, covering three of them while the 'over' has cashed in three of those outings. The over is also 9-3 across the past 12 contests, too.
New York (9-22 SU, 10-19-2 ATS)
have dropped four in a row, and 12 of the past 13 games while going 1-10-1 ATS across the past 12. They have failed to cover in consecutive games dating all the way back to July 20-24. The 'over' has cashed in four in a row, and the over is 8-2-1 across the past 11.
Phoenix (15-16 SU, 17-13-1 ATS)
clinched a playoff spot, going 2-1 SU/ATS in their three-game week. The Mercury are an impressive 6-2 ATS across the past eight outings. The 'over' has connected in four of the past five, too.
Seattle (16-15 SU, 16-14-1 ATS)
stayed one game ahead of the Mercury, bouncing back with a 17-point win over the Dream after dropping two in a row at home. The Storm had posted a solid 5-3 ATS mark across the past eight, and the 'over' is 4-1 in the past five outings.
Washington (23-8 SU, 18-12-1 ATS)
haven't lost back-to-back games since a three-game losing skid back from July 7-13. They're 13-2 SU across the past 15 games since that three-game slide, and they're 6-2 ATS in the past eight outings. The over is also 9-3 in their past 12 games, too.
