INDIAN COWBOY'S WNBA RESEARCH
Chicago vs. Connecticut
Your quick look at WNBA Research is as follows. Note, that Connecticut is a big favorite over Chicago today, but the question begs does the Sky really need to be nearly 10 point dogs on the road. After all, this is the same team that beat Detroit at home, Washington on the road and New York on the road Outright. Sure, they lost to Seattle at home but Seattle is a solid team. Furthermore, Chicago is a great bounce-back team as their ATS results over the past 10 games looks as well L, W, W, W, L, L, W, W, W, W. Notice a trend? This team is 7-3 ATS of late and the only time they lost back to back ATS ballgames was at San Antonio and at Houston in back to back ballgames which is tough for any team. Chicago has never done worse than lose by 7 to the Sun, including a 2 point loss and winning outright once earlier this year.
Atlanta vs. New York
New York has beaten this team by 10 and 4 on the road and now Atlanta comes to their home front for this game. Atlanta has lost the last 7 ATS. I simply cannot wager on the Dream as they have been pitiful of late no matter how enticing the line might be and the spread is too big for any value and a backdoor is always likely with such a huge spread.
Indiana vs. Detroit
Detroit lost to this team by 9 last time around, so they do have some revenge here, but Detroit has been simply terrible of late. Indiana comes off a big outright win on the road and now looks to shake things up here on the road as well. Detroit of course is coming off an OT outright loss to Chicago (my wnba game of the year), having said that, I can see Indiana winning this game outright as well or Detroit coming through on a bounce-back.
Los Angeles vs. San Antonio
The Sparks simply pounded the Lynx at home on what was the only game on the wnba card earlier this week. Thus, when the attention was on them, they delivered. This is a big Conference battle for placing out West. The public is split on this game, as you know, the Sparks are a public team so it should come at no surprise they are dogged by just 3.5 here. Heck, San Antonio is 12-2 at home while the Sparks are not even .500 on the road (7-8). Each team has covered their respective ballgames at home as they have played 3 times, twice in L.A. and once in San Antonio. It seems it is time for San Antonio to even the score after losing 2 in a row to the Sparks at L.A. The Sparks have covered their last 5 contests and San Antonio's last game was actually August 30th where they lost to the Sparks, so this is the first game since that break they had. They vividly remember that loss and I can see them getting their revenge here.
Sacramento vs. Phoenix
Sacramento hits the road at Phoenix for this ballgame between 2 teams out west. The public favors the Mercury off their cover against the Lynx at home to a tune of 60%. The Monarchs have beaten Phoenix both times out this year and covered and they come off a big 15 point win at home against Houston but have struggled of late on the road. Frankly, Phoenix does have revenge, but they are banged up a bit and I just don't trust them.
