Vegas Writer's Daily Recap - June 30, 2023

by Vegas Writer

Friday, Jun 30, 2023
In MLB on Thursday, we saw seven underdogs turn in a profitable night with a 7-4 mark, and two games being a pick. Yesterday's Big Dawg that barked loudest was once again the Pittsburgh Pirates (+175, DraftKings) with their 5-4 win over the San Diego Padres.

San Diego is in a dangerous spot as it opens a weekend set with the Reds. The Padres arrive in Cincinnati mired in a five-game skid, and their offense is damn-near non-existent. They're hitting just .223 since June 24 and averaging a mere 2.4 runs per game during the five-game slide. And for a power-packed lineup they're supposed to be proud of, they've hit just three homers the past five games - fifth-lowest the last seven days.

Thursday I nailed my MLB Winner #21 of 30 on the Phillies over Chicago. I'm No. 2 on the Leaderboard the L7 days with $5,900 NET$. The winning continues tonight with THREE PLAYS OF THE MONTH, including two more winning totals! I'm on a 6-1 run with MLB Totals of the Month in June, and have two TOTALS OF THE MONTH. I also have a DIVISION DOG OF THE MONTH in this bundle. Easy 3-0 with this MLB TRIPLE PLAY.

In the WNBA last night, the dogs had a profitbale night winning two of three outright.

The Minnesota Lynx (+2 1/2) went into Seattle and beat the Storm 99-97 in overtime. It was Minnesota's second straight win over the Storm, after winning in Minneapolis on Wednesday. The Lynx have covered eight of 11 since failing to cover their first four games this season.

The Phoenix Mercury (+2 1/2) were dominant in a wire-to-wire 85-63 victory over the Indiana Fever. The win snapped Phoenix's six-game slide both SU and ATS.

In the premier matchup that was billed as the most anticipated game of the season, the Las Vegas Aces decimated the New York Liberty (-6'), 98-81. But while many are ready to crown the Aces their second-straight title, keep in mind the Liberty were playing their fourth game in seven nights - and third on the road. They went to overtime with Washington on Sunday, then beat Connecticut on Tuesday, traveled all day Wednesday and played the rested Aces, who were off Tuesday and Wednesday and were playing the fourth of a five-game homestand.
