Vegas Writer's Daily Recap - July 3, 2023

In MLB on Sunday, we saw seven underdogs turn in a profitable night with a 7-6 mark, and two games being a pick. Yesterday's Big Dawg that barked loudest was the Washington Nationals (+220, DraftKings) eking out a 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.

The Nationals closed out a nine-game road trip by winning six of their last eight on the trek, with their offense averaging 4.5 runs per game in those games. Washington did a good job of manufacturing runs, with a batting average of .250 and OPS of .720. They also smacked 10 home runs along the way, making up for a pitching staff that turned in a 5.00 ERA in the same stretch of games.

I went 2-0 on Sunday, hitting my MLB Interleague Total of the Month on the Tigers/Rockies soaring past the posted total, and my WNBA Non-Conference Game of the Month on the New York Liberty, who went into Seattle and weathered the Storm.  I'm now on a 26-19 overall run since June 13, including a 23-12 MLB roll for a net profit of $10,570. Today it's an EARLY rivalry clash, with the Cubs visiting Milwaukee, as I break down this pitching matchup to a tee. Don't miss my MLB DIVISION GAME OF THE MONTH.

Speaking of a busy WNBA, the favorites wen 3-1 on Sunday.

The Atlanta Dream (-4') destroyed the struggling Los Angeles Spark, 112-84, who are missing a key cog in the lineup with Lexie Brown still out. The Sparks have now lost three straight both SU and ATS.

In Dallas, it was the Wings (-6') holding court against the visiting Washington Mystics with an 89-72 victory. The Wings will take a 2-0 SU and ATS win streak with them on the road when they visit the defending champion Las Vegas Aces on Wednesday.

The Chicago Sky (+3) were the lone underdog winner, as they went into Indianapolis and pulled out an 89-87 win over the Indiana Fever. The young and scrappy Fever lost for the fourth straight time, and are still looking for their sixth win of the season, one more than they gathered all last season. Indiana is still on an 8-4-2 ATS run.

The New York Liberty (-10') bounced back from an embarrassing loss to the Aces on Thursday by going into Seattle and weathering the Storm in an 81-66 victory. The Liberty are on winning runs of 11-3 SU and 6-3 ATS.
