Tulsa at Atlanta

3 units on Tulsa +15 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Tulsa has not quit on the season and despite their poor record, they’ve won two of the last four games. As a result, they are undervalued by oddsmakers and are on a 5-2 ATS run, winning twice as a +9 and +8.5 dog. There is good offensive talent, with Sheryl Swoopes (who is trying point guard) and Tulsa is coming off a 78-72 home loss to Seattle on Friday night, rallying from a 15-point deficit. Jennifer Lacy tied a career high with 18 points, so there is plenty of offensive punch. The Shock is 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a straight-up loss. With one more victory in its final four games, Tulsa will avoid matching the lowest victory total in WNBA history. Atlanta is 3-4 ATS its last seven games and this is a look-ahead spot with its final two games on deck against teams ahead of it in the standings, Connecticut and Indiana. The Atlanta Dream is 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games playing on one day of rest, while the Shock are 3-1-2 ATS in the last six meetings with Atlanta. Play the Tulsa Shock.
