Vegas Writer's Daily Recap - June 29, 2023

Thursday, Jun 29, 2023
A full slate of MLB games for Wednesday night, and we saw underdogs turn in a profitable night with a 7-7 mark, with one game being a pick. Last night's Big Dawg that barked loudest was once again the Washington Nationals (+230, DraftKings) with their 4-1 win at the Seattle Mariners.

After a brutal 5-18 skid from May 28 to June 23, the Nationals have won four of five behind a steady offense that is hitting .249 and slugging .407. The Nationals have belted six home runs in the five-game stretch, and are averaging 5.0 runs per game. The pitching staff has an ERA of 3.13 in that same span. Washington heads to Philadelphia for a weekend set after taking today off, while the Phillies are closing out a series at Wrigley Field today. Could they be tired for the quick turnaround and a game against the suddenly hot Nationals tomorrow?

In the WNBA, it was another clean sweep for the favorites, which went 2-0 SU and ATS.

The Chicago Sky laid -2 1/2 to the Los Angeles Sparks and rolled to an 80-63 victory. The total stayed well under 156 1/2 points. With the win, the Sky snapped a six-game slide on the court and three-game slide at the window.

The Washington Mystics (-4 1/2) didn't hold back in their 109-86 thrashing of the Atlanta Dream, while that total soared past 163. Washington bounced back from a disappointing 89-88 overtime loss at New York on Monday. The Mystics are enjoying a five-game win streak at the window.

I went 2-0 on Wednesday. Tonight, as part of my lineup, I have my WNBA UNDERDOG OF THE MONTH with the best value on the entire card with this pup. I also love one of tonight's WNBA Totals. I'm on a 6-1 run with my Over/Unders, so you won't want to miss this gift. Let's close the month strong, as we have two days left in June, and I want you to make money along with me. Do not miss this WNBA UNDERDOG OF THE MONTH and TOTAL WINNER # 7 OF 8.
