Friday Betting Recaps

Friday was mostly centered around MLB’s full 15-game schedule with favorites mostly dominating, though the WNBA did have a big upset (and I’ll leave the NBA Summer League to others).

The Dallas Wings beat the defending WNBA champion Las Vegas Aces 80-78 as 10-point home underdogs and +425 on the money line to deal the Aces just their second loss of the season in 18 games.

It seemed appropriate that I was at the biggest MLB upset of the night in the Rockies’ 5-2 win at the Giants as +170 underdogs at San Francisco’s Oracle Park.

Let’s get to the rest of the MLB recaps for Friday night, and then update the season-long betting stats.


MLB: Faves went 10-4 Friday with the Mariners-Astros game closing pick-'em. The upsets were by the Rockies (+170 in their 5-2 win at the Giants), Orioles (+144 in 3-1, 10-inning win at Twins), Cubs (+144 in 3-0 win at Yankees) and Mets (+102 in 7-5, 10-inning win at Padres). Road teams went 9-6. Over/Unders split 7-7-1 with the push in the Red Sox’s 7-3 win vs. the A’s with a betting total of 10 runs.

More MLB: Favorites improved to 752-543 on the season with 22 PKs. Home teams' lead has been slipping recently but they still lead 678-635 with 4 neutral-site games. Unders still hold a slim lead at 633-627-56 with 1 no-action (thanks to going 9-3-1 on Thursday).

A Numbers Game: Be careful betting baseball games right now, if they don’t involve teams still trying to make the playoffs. Teams that have clinched or teams that are completely out of it will be approaching games far differently. View more tips.
