Vegas Writer's Daily Recap - June 1, 2023

by Vegas Writer

Thursday, Jun 01, 2023
Just MLB in action last night,

Eight of the 12 underdogs won Tuesday on the MLB card, with two games a pick'em. The most notable underdog victory was undoubtedly the Washington Nationals (+195 DraftKings) in their 10-6 win at the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Nationals are just 24-32 and in 5th place in the National League East, but this offense can sometimes be dangerous. In three of their last seven wins they plated double-digit runs. They're off tonight, but return home for a weekend set with the Philadelphia Phillies after splitting six road games and hitting .256 while averaging 5.3 runs per game and stroking eight home runs.

With the NBA Finals getting underway, I'm taking the night off in MLB.

Tonight we're back on the hardwood, where I've dominated the postseason. I'm on a 45-26-2 run in the NBA for $16,350 since April 17. And going back 60 Days, I'm No .4 on the Moneyboard. Tonight I have both the Side and Total for Game 1, and I love this Over/Under. My ONE-AND-ONLY NBA PLAYOFFS TOTAL OF THE YEAR goes tonight. I also open the series with NBA SIDE WINNER # 31 OF 49.

Though the NHL won't start until Saturday with Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, I will keep these notes handy for you.
