Sacramento Monarchs at Connecticut Sun (-8, 142)

Last week, the Monarchs changed coaches, hoping to jump-start a team that reached the playoffs a year ago. It hasn't worked.

Since GM John Whisenant replaced Jenny Boucek on the sidelines, the Monarchs are 0-3 straight up and against the spread, extending both streaks to five games. They are shooting less than 36 percent from the field since the coaching change.

Sacramento has the worst record aganist the spread (ATS), overall record, home record and road record in the league.

The Monarchs were swept by the Sun a year ago, losing twice by a combined 39 points.

Pick: Connecticut -8

Minnesota Lynx at Phoenix Mercury (-3.5, 178.5)

Lynx forward and leading scorer Simeone Augustus has been sidelined since June 12 with a knee injury. Mercury guard and WNBA leading scorer Diana Taurasi will serve the second game of her two-game team suspension for a DUI arrest.

Their absences should have no effect on the league's top two offenses.

Phoenix leads the league in scoring at 93.4 points per game, ringing up 97 without Taurasi on Sunday. Minnesota is second at 81.7 points, with three players averaging at least 13 points per contest.

These teams have the top two records against the over this season and have exceeded the total in their last nine meetings, with one team scoring at least 90 points in all of those games.

Pick: Over 178.5
