Team Betting Notes

Minnesota (2-0) has won each of its first two games, covering on the road and failing to cover at home. One thing which has been consistent are high scores, as the Lynx have averaged 89.5 PPG through the first two outings. The 'over' has cashed in each of their first two contests.

Tulsa (0-1) was tripped up on the road in its opener at San Antonio (1-1). However, the Shock was able to cover, and they will likely be big underdogs against the visiting Lynx Friday in their home opener.

After an impressive win on the road to kick off the season, Los Angeles (1-1) returned home and were dropped by Phoenix (2-0) Sunday. The Sparks have seen the 'under' go 1-0-1 in its first two.

The Mercury have covered each of their first two, and both have been low-scoring affairs, at least for their opponents. Brittney Griner and company are allowing just 66.5 PPG through their first two dates.

Connecticut (0-2) has stumbled out of the chute, losing each of their first two contests straight-up. They haven't been much at the defensive end, either, giving up 82.5 PPG.

Elena Della Donne and the Chicago (2-0) Sky are off to an impressive start so far, winning and covering each of its first two battles. The Sky are averaging 76.5 PPG offensively, while allowing just 68.0 PPG. They'll meet the Sun at home Wednesday before a visit from Atlanta (2-0) Saturday.

Speaking of the Dream, while they are unbeaten to kick off their 2014 campaign, Atlanta has been a nightmare against the spread, going 0-2 ATS so far.
