San Antonio at Atlanta

3 units on Atlanta -6.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Atlanta started the season 6-0 but have since lost three of their last four. Was this team a mirage at first? Are they just bad now? Neither is true. The reality is that their record is probably still a bit inflated, but they are a very good team. They have played three of their last four on the road which is a tough place to win in the WNBA. They really have only lost once this season in an upset. All of their other losses (and some wins) have come when they were the underdog. This game they are favored and for good reason. The Silver Stars are just 3-5 on the season and have dropped four of their last five games, getting outscored by 12 points per game in the process. As a road underdog of 6.5 to 9 points, San Antonio is just 14-29 ATS lifetime. They are 12-25 ATS on the road in June. Over the past three seasons, the Stars are 1-8 ATS coming off a home win in which they scored 85+ points. Atlanta is the much superior team here and at home, they should find no problem covering this number.
