Vegas Writer's Daily Recap - June 17, 2023

Four of the 13 underdogs got it done in MLB on Friday, with two games a pick. Last night's Big Dawg that barked loudest once again was the Detroit Tigers (+205 Caesars), winning on the road against the Minnesota Twins, 7-1.

It was a shocker because the Tigers have lost 13 of 17 and are hitting a bleak .229 since May 29. They're also scoring only 3.5 runs per game in that span. Oddly enough over the 17-game stretch, for prop players, the Tigers have belted 19 home runs. Could be something to watch this weekend since the Twins have lost eight of 12 and their staff has a 4.54 ERA and has been tagged for 15 home runs, including three last night.

Went 1-1 on Friday, after hitting my MLB BLANK CHECK REVENGE ROUT on the Red Sox, who devoured the Yankees, 15-5. Plenty of action to invest in today, including my TOP DOG for June. I'm on a 4-1 run with MLB action since Tuesday, and in addition to the other three MLB plays for Saturday, you'll be pleased with my MLB UNDERDOG OF THE MONTH.

In the WNBA on Friday, the underdogs finished 1-1.

The Washington Mystics took full advantage of a short-handed Phoenix Mercury squad that was without Brittney Griner. The Mystics, who laid -12 points, beat Phoenix 88-69. The total landed just over 156.

The Minnesota Lynx made it two straight over the Los Angeles Sparks, this time winning in Southern California. The Sparks were without sharpshooting Lexie Brown, and the offense suffered, as the Lynx (+5.5) won 77-72. The tally fell 11 points short of the 160-point total.

Again, plenty of action to invest in today, and part of that for me is the College World Series. Love one of today's underdogs, a play that you cannot miss out on, as the price is a dandy. Just one play with the college boys with metal bats, but it's a biggie. My COLLEGE WORLD SERIES DOG OF THE YEAR goes tonight.
