Vegas Writer's Daily Recap - June 21, 2023

Six of the 14 underdogs won in MLB on Tuesday, with one game a pick. Last night's Big Dawg that barked loudest had to be the Baltimore Orioles (+152, Caesars) getting it done in Tampa over the Rays.

It was a battle of the American League East leaders, as the Rays are sitting atop the division by four games, but the Orioles are closing fast, having won two in a row and eight of 11 behind an offensive surge.

The Orioles are hitting .299 and slugging .508 since June 8, hitting 18 home runs and averaging nearly six runs per game. But it's not just hitting getting it done, as the pitching staff has been respectable with a 3.71 ERA while keeping the ball inside the walls, allowing less than a home run per game (10 HRs in 11 games).

I went 1-0 on Tuesday, hitting the Giants with my N.L. West Game of the Month. Now on a 10-4 run in baseball for $5,320 net profit. Tonight we keep the flow going with an easy Over/Under from the late card, as I love a pitching matchup and the total that comes with these guys. Get on board for another MLB Winner, my MLB LATE DIVISION TOTAL OF THE MONTH.

The WNBA got back in action on Tuesday with three games, with two of three underdogs covering the number. The Dallas Wings were the lone favorite that covered, laying -3 (Caesars) at home to Atlanta and then beating the Dream by 12, 85-73.

Connecticut went into Seattle laying -8 to the Storm, but the Sun only won by six, 85-79, failing to cover for the seventh time in 10 games after covering three straight to open the season. The Sun are now 4-3 ATS on the road this year.

The Minnesota Lynx have just four wins this season, and three of the victories have come against the Los Angeles Sparks. The Sparks laid -6.5 to the Lynx, who went into L.A. and won outright 67-61. Minnesota improved to 6-3 ATS as an underdog this year.

Only one game on the WNBA card today, a matinee, and it's my free pick of the day.
