Vegas Writer's Daily Recap - July 1, 2023

by Vegas Writer

Saturday, Jul 01, 2023
In MLB on Friday, we saw eight underdogs turn in a profitable night with an 8-5 mark, and one game being a pick and another postponed. Yesterday's Big Dawg that barked loudest was the Washington Nationals (+160, DraftKings) eking out a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.

An extended road trip is clearly not taking a toll just yet on this squad, as the Nationals have won five of the first seven of their current trek that's gone through San Diego, Seattle, and now Philadelphia. Washington is hitting .250 on this road trip, powering through with eight home runs and 18 doubles for a slugging percentage of .419. In winning five of their last six, the Nationals also boast a rather stingy 2.78 ERA.

Friday I hit my A.L. West Dog of the Month on the Astros. I finished June with a profitable 6-3 mark with my MLB Dogs of the Month, and continue this baseball roll I've been on since June 13. Since then, I'm 22-11 with my MLB selections for a net profit of $10,570. For Saturday, I start July with an incredible value in a division showdown, as I love another dog price. Let's grab the cash with another MLB DIVISION DOG OF THE MONTH.

The dogs split the evening in the WNBA, with two home teams holding their ground.

The Atlanta Dream (+1') rolled past the Washington Mystics, 94-89, and snapped a three-game slide on both the court and at the window. The loss snapped Washington's five-game ATS win streak, but extended their Over streak to three in a row.

The Chicago Sky (-2) covered rather easily, dominating the visiting Los Angeles Sparks in an 86-78 victory. It was Chicago's second straight win and cover over the Sparks, who are now mired in a 2-5 skid both SU and ATS since June 16.
