Vegas Writer's Daily Recap - June 26, 2023

Seven of the 13 underdogs won in MLB on Sunday, with two games a pick. Last night's Big Dawg that barked loudest was the Colorado Rockies (+135, DraftKings) with their 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels.

It was quite a shock for me, considering how bad the Rockies have been since this month. Colorado has lost nine of 11 since June 14, and 15 of 20 since June 4. And while the team has gotten some timely hitting at times, its pitching has struggled over the 20-game span to the tune of a 7.13 ERA. Opponents are hitting a whopping .312 in that range, while they've blasted 38 home runs in those 20 games.

I hit Sunday's Blank Check Winner on the Milwaukee Brewers over the Cleveland Guardians. I'm No. 1 on the MLB Leaderboard the L7 days (10-3) with $7,200 NET$. Back further, during this 17-7 run, the profits are up to $9,220 since June 13. Don't miss MLB WINNER # 18 OF 25, another BLANK CHECK WINNER.

In the WNBA, two of three underdogs covered the number on Sunday, while all three games went over the posted total.

Connecticut was the lone favorite to cover, as the Sun welcomed the Sky to town, and then booted them back to Chicago after a 96-72 win. The Sun have now won four in a row and while they're 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS over their last seven games.

The New York Liberty eked out an 89-88 win over the Washington Mystics and failed to cover the -7-point spread. The loss snapped Washington's three-game win streak. The Mystics have covered four in a row.

Friday we saw a dramatic line shift with the Dallas Wings opening a 1-point underdog, closing a 2 1/2-point favorite and then saw the Los Angeles Sparks take an epic 76-74 outright victory. Yesterday, Dallas was a 2-1/2-point favorite the entire time leading up to tip off, and lost by 10 to the Sparks, 93-83. After losing three in a row on the court and at the window, the Sparks have won and covered two in a row.
