Vegas Writer's Daily Recap - July 4, 2023

by Vegas Writer

Tuesday, Jul 04, 2023
In MLB on Monday, we saw underdogs win two of seven games with three games being a pick. Yesterday's Big Dawg that barked loudest was the Houston Astros (+125, DraftKings) in a 12-11 marathon win over the Texas Rangers.

The Astros have now won five of six thanks to an offensive surge that has seen them hit .295 since June 28, and stroke 11 home runs and score an average of 8.0 runs per game in that span. Houston is also slugging .530. Toss out yesterday's run barrage, and the Astros' pitching staff had a 3.48 ERA in their previous five games.

Went 1-0 on Monday with my lone baseball release, my NL Central Game of the Month on the Brewers. Now on an overall 27-19 roll since June 13, including a 24-12 MLB run for a net profit of $11,570. And tonight I put the money to work for us with a DIVISION TOTAL OF THE MONTH. I'm on a 7-3 run with MLB totals - all MLB Totals of the Month, including my Interleague Total of the Month on the Rockies/Tigers OV on July 2. Tonight I do it again with another DIVISION TOTAL OF THE MONTH.

The WNBA was idle Monday and returns to action on Wednesday

The NBA Summer League has gotten started, but the value there is tough to figure out with uncertainty in the lineups.

The CFL will be something to keep an eye on now that the season is well underway.
