Vegas Writer's Daily Recap - July 5, 2023

In MLB on Tuesday, we saw underdogs win five of 14 underdogs cover with just one game being a pick. Yesterday's Big Dawg that barked loudest was the Pittsburgh Pirates (+222, Caesars) in a 9-7 upset of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

It hasn't just been recent, as the Dodgers' pitching staff has struggled since June 3, which is why they're 12-15 since then. Their pitching staff has a 4.70 ERA and teams are hitting .254 off of them. They're also allowing nearly a home run per game (26 in 27 games). It's no wonder they have to depend on the offense, and also no wonder they've gone over in six of their last seven.

Went 0-1 on Tuesday. Nevertheless, I'm still on a 27-20 overall roll since June 13, including a 24-13 MLB run for a net profit of $10,370. Tonight I've got two Major League plays for you tonight, with TWO DOGS OF THE MONTH. I've got one from Interleague play and one from a specific division. Don't miss this potential two-team parlay if you're into those things, as I sweep the MLB board with my MLB DOG OF THE MONTH DUO.

The WNBA was idle Tuesday and returns to action on tonight. I hit my WNBA Non-Conference Game of the Month on the New York Liberty blasting the Storm in Seattle on July 2. After taking a couple days off, the league is back in action tonight, and I'm looking to bank on a key conference showdown. To compliment my MLB Dog of the Month Duo, I have my WNBA CONFERENCE GAME OF THE MONTH.

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.
