Vegas Writer's Daily Recap - June 28, 2023

Wednesday, Jun 28, 2023
A full slate of MLB games for Tuesday night, and we saw underdogs turn in a 6-8 mark, with one game being a pick. Last night's Big Dawg that barked loudest was the Washington Nationals (+205, Caesars) with their 7-4 win at the Seattle Mariners.

After a brutal 5-18 skid from May 28 to June 23, the Nationals have won three of four behind a steady offense that is hitting .248 and slugging .421. The Nationals have belted six home runs in the four-game stretch, and are averaging 5.2 runs per game. The pitching staff has an ERA of 3.65 in that same span. Washington is catching another big price today in Seattle, and be wary of laying the number with the M's, as the Nationals have won 15 of the last 21 meetings and seven of the last 10 at T-Mobile Park.

In the WNBA, it was a clean sweep for the favorites, which went 3-0 SU and ATS.

The New York Liberty geared up for their showdown in Las Vegas with the defending champion Aces by thumping defending Eastern Conference champion Connecticut, in an 89-81 decision over the Sun. New York laid -4 and the total crept over the 168 1/2.

Despite missing a couple of players, the Minnesota Lynx (-4) led wire-to-wire at home in a 104-93 win over the Seattle Storm. The tally easily soared past the posted 161. The Lynx have now covered four of their last six, and seven of their last 10.

In the nightcap, it was the Dallas Wings (-4) serving a road whooping on the Phoenix Mercury, 77-62. The total was 168 1/2 and fell well short of that, as Phoenix struggled in its first game under interim coach Nikkie Blue, who stepped in after Vanessa Nygaard was fired over the weekend.
